We need more angel investors in the Pacific Northwest

Since starting W Media Ventures two years ago, I had to realize that the Pacific Northwest lacks a good network of angel investors with active angels like Geoff Entress out of Seattle being the exception rather then the norm. This is certainly not because of a lack of successful tech entrepreneur in this region but many of them don’t seem to be aware of the opportunities of investing in early-stage companies and how rewarding it can be to pass on knowledge to fellow entrepreneurs. So we need to do a better job of spreading the word of how to get involved in angel investing and I am therefore looking forward to speaking at the Angel Capital Overview workshop in Vancouver tomorrow. The workshop is organized by Bob Chaworth-Musters’ AngelForum and provides an overview of the angel investment process from valuation to due diligence to terms sheets in a compact 1 day workshop. And as it is led by US Angel of 2009 and Kauffman Foundation Entrepreneur-in-Residence Bill Payne, I am looking forward to learning a thing or two myself.
