Training and Growth

The SDAC is the culmination of 10 events to help entrepreneurs become more investment-worthy, and 10 sessions for accredited angel investors with a learn-by-doing approach.


Working together with entrepreneurs seeking funding, Angels will learn how to source deals, conduct due diligence, and evaluate early stage companies.


The companies seeking capital will also gain feedback and learn to understand the viewpoint of angel investors.


The companies are narrowed down weekly until six remain. At the Conference, the finalists make their last pitch and investors select one to receive $200,000*.

*Investment amount depends on the number of participating investors
