Experienced Female Founders and Angel investors share secrets on succeeding in raising capital and creating successful exits
StartUpNV is hosting the inaugural Women’s Dreamers and Believers Conference on Friday, Jan. 24. with a slate of experienced female angel investors, successful female startup founders, and startup women ecosystem builders from Nevada and Southern California. The half day workshop takes place from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the International Innovation Center @Vegas with expert speakers, and panel discussions for current and aspiring angel investors, start-up founders, and those interested in accelerating a vibrant and inclusive Las Vegas start-up ecosystem.
This workshop is partly funded by StartUpNV’s U.S. Economic Development Administration grant. “The mission of this grant is to educate investors and founders, form new early-stage funds, and promote traditionally underserved communities,” said Maggie Saling, Chief of Staff at StartUpNV. “Female founded startups are foundational to StartUpNV – and any successful ecosystem because they perform 63% better than teams with all male founders. We plan to be a catalyst for the creation of early stage investment, including women angels, to build a vibrant, inclusive startup ecosystem in Las Vegas.”
Dreamers and Believers attendees will learn from Keynote speaker Dr. Silvia Mah about “Hidden Bias Held by Both Genders” and participate a short course on angel investing. They’ll hear from Cindy Gatlin and Kristin Fox on term sheet terminology and valuation – and from female founders from across Nevada. The entrepreneurs include Lisa Song Sutton, Amanda Signorelli and Marta Spegman-Lopez Venture, Danell Wilson-Perlman, Julie Brander, Lauren Klein, Chelli Wolford, Annie Emprima-Martin. Madeline Feldman, Director of Business Development for StartUpNV is emcee and the final speaker is Mysty Rusk, Director, University of San Diego Innovation Center
