The events at Riverside Angle Summit 2021

The events at the Riverside Angel Summit 2021 cover a wide variety of activities for startups. Pitch training and practice sessions are followed by go-to-market and customer discovery workshops. In addition, a couple of events in the summit will focus on investment strategy and alternative funding sources that startup founders can explore.  

The summit will also provide a sneak peek into how angel investors decide to invest in startups and portfolio strategies that enlighten entrepreneurs on how an investment works.

The summit will also get into the weeds of funding processes. Term sheets, cap tables, valuation, and Risk-to-Value (R2V) are all important subjects that startup founders will learn to make the next move in getting an angel’s funding.

Here are a few samples of the workshops:
