How does Seattle Angel Conference Work?Two months prior to the next the Seattle Angel Conference, interested investors apply to participate in the associated Investors LLC. For each investment round, a new collaborative process is kicked off supported by a team of experienced angel investors and fund managers. Extensive due diligence is performed before the investment decision is made at the conference in a majority voting format. During the due diligence process, entrepreneurs present their pitches and investors form small deep-dive groups to learn more and report back to the larger investors group during weekly meetings. Meetings can be joined in person or online. Participation in weekly due diligence meetings is encouraged but optional.

Seattle Angel TestimonialsGuest Post by Ryan Luce, CoFounder of Corengi
The Seattle Angel Conference is a phenomenal idea and well executed. As a participating company the diligence with the investors and structure really helped us craft our story, in addition to helping us build relationships with a group of early stage angel investors

Working with Seattle Angel and presenting at the Seattle Angel Conference was a real pleasure. Being selected as the winner of the investment was just a part of what I received from Seattle Angel in helping get my company off the ground.
Max Baker, CEO, ILLUMAGEAR
Buddy had a tremendous experience. While we had some experience pitching prior to the SAC, the mentorship, community and networking were very valuable, and we'd highly recommend any early-stage startup consider the SAC in their fundraising and network-building efforts.
