About the san diego angel conference
Bringing Entrepreneurs and Investors Together
Angels used to say there weren’t enough good deals in San Diego. Entrepreneurs would say there aren’t enough investors writing checks. In just its second year, the San Diego Angel Conference is bridging that gap and improving both of these issues through a series of events that build up to a one-day conference where an investment of $200,000 is made in a local startup. It’s all part of our commitment to training, growth, and funding in our community.
Developing startups and helping them fundraise
The San Diego Angel Conference is operated by the Brink SBDC, the #1 Accelerator in San Diego as ranked by the SDBJ. It provides entreprenuers with free training to help prepare for the fundraising process.
