Meet the Firm: Alliance of Angels
We had a fascinating meet the firm today with a local non-profit called Alliance of Angels. They work with local Pacific Northwest entrepreneurs to help connect them with angel investors and find the resources they need to take their business to the next level. Some of the services the Alliance of Angels brings to the community include hosting pitch clinics to educate entrepreneurs on how to best present their business plan as well as networking events, forums, and a screening process for local investors. Some of their successful alumni include such notable startups as BuddyTV, Redfin, and the Coffee Equipment Company (makers of the Clover espresso machine and recently acquired by Starbucks). No doubt a huge service to the Seattle startup community.
