The Education of an Angel Investor

Two great workshops...

...choose one or both!

Join Seattle Angel for two amazing workshops in July. Both focused on angel investors and designed to help both new or interested angel investors as well as experienced angel investors. Attend both for loads of education or pick the one that fits your needs or schedule.

Intro to Angel Investing

Interested in exploring how startups get funded? Ever wonder what it really takes to build a successful company? Perhaps you have some expertise to offer to help get a new business off the ground but aren’t ready to give up the day job.

Come join John Sechrest an entrepreneur, angel investor, and the founder of the Seattle Angel Conference and the Willamette Angel Conference. John will provide an introduction to angel investing on July 7th at 6:00PM in 36/1108 – Elliott.

Angel Portfolio 201

Expanding on the Angel Portfolio 101 but still appropriate for angels and potential angels of all types, this workshop will dive into some of the more tricky tax issues that are inevitably part of all investing. A few of the questions we'll answer are:

Invest from your IRA or your Savings?
What should you do with capital gains?
Are taxes different when investing in a fund?
Join us for an afternoon of education with Bader Martin's top tax professionals as they answer these and much much more.

What: Angel Portfolio 201 w/Bader Martin
Where: Bader Martin's office in Seattle
When: July 23rd 2015 at 4:00PM
RSVP: Only $15 to attend!!
