Cambridge Angels seek candidates for Mentoring Day


25-09-2010

The Cambridge Angels are seeking candidate companies to attend their Mentoring Day being held on October 20th at the Hauser Forum. Please note the application deadline is this Wednesday (September 29th).

Approximately six companies will be chosen to take part in the Mentoring Day. Each will be matched with an Angel Mentor who will spend one to two hours with them in the morning, talking through the business plan.  The companies will then have some time in which to work on their pitch, and share an informal lunch, before the pitches begin at 2pm. 

Each company will have a 30 minute slot to pitch, field questions, and receive feedback from the whole group of Angels present.  The Angels will choose at least one company, who they think is ready to receive funding, to give a formal pitch to a much larger group of the Cambridge Angels later in the year.

Candidate companies should

- be early-stage ventures looking for angel investment (typically up to £500k, with a pre-money valuation of no ore than £1m);

- be web, information technology or life science based;

- ideally have a business model that will not require a large amount of further funding to get to market; and

- be willing and able to take advice from people who have 'been there, done that!'


If you would like to apply, please go straight to
www.angelsoft.net/apply/cambridgeangels and do an online application, at the same time sending an email to Oonagh Phelan, letting her know that you would like to be considered for the Mentoring Day (oonagh.phelan@cambridgeangels.net).


Deadline for applications is 29th September.
