Sharks or Angels?

Could we possibly see a feeding frenzy at an event called the "Open Angel Forum"?

We'll all find out together.  The Open Angel Forum is a live event.

Well, the "we" will be those who register.

On the second day of the the two-day VT KnowledgeWorks Second Annual Entrepreneurship Summit, April 8, 2010, 1:00 PM, we'll see what happens to the five finalists selected to pitch their ideas and funding requests to an amphitheater full of angel investors and spectators.

Will their ideas be greeted by sharks or angels?

In alphabetical order by company name, the companies selected to present are: – Frederick Cook

LimbGear - Tyson Daniel

Maxtena- Dr. Stanislav Licul

NewCityLabs- David Poteet

RRx - Robert Giles

We're getting the scoop on the five presenters and will share what we find out.

And some interesting conversation about angel investor funding occurred on this post related to the launch of DayOne Ventures @ VT KnowledgeWorks.
