Learn about angel investing & a unique accelerator fund

On Thursday February 9 6:30pm I speak at Texas Land & Cattle in Richardson for an educational seminar on alternative investments. Vern Bell, President of Enterprise Benefits, also presents an overview of little known safe investments. Thanks to our sponsors, dinner is free!  I hope you can join us.

Understanding Angel Investing

Are you in or have you been interested in the high growth ventures? Did you ever wonder what Angel and Venture Capital Investing are all about and how to participate? Have you wanted to get in on the ground floor of ventures that explode into billion dollar IPOs like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Zynga? I will explain how ventures seek money, how angel investments work, and how they generate above average returns compared to the stock market. I’ll introduce the new and unique accelerator fund, which generates even higher returns with less risk.

Registration is required.
