I’m in Seattle for the Northwest Regional Angel Conference. I’ve attended all 6 years.
Angel investors here, like elsewhere, look for technology company startups to invest in. It’s half profit motivated and half altruism. For theFrankPetersShow I travel to these summits to meet new people and hear the latest in best practices. This 2-day Seattle conference is a stand-out each year.
Led by the long-term leadership of the Alliance of Angels’ Dan Rosen, these investors benefit from a fertile early-stage investment market. Companies like Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon and Starbucks have created multi-millionaires to seed new companies, then acquire them once they hit the mark.
Year after year, Seattle and the many angel groups gathered here at this conference demonstrate that they take a back seat to no one.
