Last night we had theÂ privilegeÂ of joining five other aspiring companies along with twenty super angel investors at the Open Angel Forum’s 2nd event in Boulder, CO. Â Our friends at TeamSnap did a nice job summarizing why this is a special event and ColoradoTechTV published a very well done video that captures the ethos of the gathering
A brain child of Jason Calacanis, he and David Cohen made it clear to us and our colleagues that the objective of the OAF event was to bring together seriousÂ entrepreneurs with active angel investors in a casual and intimate setting. In fact, we were one of five from one hundred applications that were selected for review – an accomplishment in and of itself from our perspective.
Unlike other events where Angel’s and VC’s charge young companies to presentÂ theirÂ solutions, Jason came up with a sponsor-subsidized model that covers event expenses. This fairness to us and others presenting plus the rule to only allow active investors makes OAF the best event we’ve attended since we started two years ago. Thanks again to Jason, David, and Brad for inviting us and for the kind treatment!
