Sold Out VC & Angel Investing Panel - Photos!

There was a great crowd of smart local entrepreneurs and investors at the OC VC & Angel Panel Thursday night. 

Organized by FundingPost.com and hosted at the new WeWork Boardwalk location, a standing-room-only audience enjoyed networking, a panel discussion on startup investing topics, and a startup quick pitch competition, too.

The hot topics for discussion by the panel revolved around early stage technology venture investing.  They included:  

  • How to meet investors, pitch them, and what it really takes to get a check
  • Hot investment sectors and trends
  • Most important factors when investors consider a new investment
  • The best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get investor attention
  • And, of course, the best ways to reach these and other investors
