FundingUtah: Speed pitching for Entrepreneurs

Under the leadership of new CEO Brock Blake, FundingUtah.com is hosting its first ever speed pitching event
for angel investors and entrepreneurs. The event will be held in Provo
at the Marriott hotel. It will be limited to 50 angel investors and 10
entrepreneurs.

This event shows how FundingUniverse.com will become more than just an online matching service for angel investors and entrepreneurs. The company will roll out all kinds of services to help entrepreneurs succeed, including events like this one.

I keep telling my partners that Florida (with 26 investors and 176
entrepreneurs) is looking like a nice place to hold our next event. And
we definitely need more people signing up in Hawaii (only 2 investors
and 8 entrepreneurs), so I can start arguing for that location as well.

Why You Must Attend Industry Conferences

I\’m adding David Hornik to my Blog Roll. He is a venture capitalist
with August Capital (and helped with the Six Apart investment) and is
one of the best VC bloggers I\’ve found so far. He made one post about time management for VCs at 4 am. You gotta love that.

Here\’s a post by Hornik–the best post I\’ve ever seen on the value of attending conferences.
