Welcome to this “Angel SharkTank” produced by American Angels.
It is importnt to note that our American Angels community in Seattle and SIlicon Valley alone, has seen and done well over $ 150,000,000 in deals last year, but we aim to top that this year.
And we have good reason to believe this, because we are already at the threshold of the $ 90,000,000 mark this year, aiming to go over $150,000,000 in financial transactions for through the Network of the Amercian Angels Startups in SIlicon Valley & Seattle alone — and thus You could also be a Winner and become FUNDED, after You pitch&demo and participate in our Meetings.
We can do amazing things together, becuase we have undertaken the process of democratizing the Crowdfunding process further and further along on the road to make evryone fundable and this is the age of the ICO as we have engaged with many founders and funders to do just that for dozens of StartUps.
We’d like to ask to answer these simple questions bellow in order to judge your personalicty and character traits:
Are you a great Startupper?
Are you the “One” to get onto the stage, to woo the Sharks and invite them to invest into your innovation?
Are you “Alpha” and do you want Angels, and VCs to spot you?
Are you next to “exit” and become financially independent?
Do you shoot for an IPO?
If you say YES to any of these questions — then pull up your bootstraps and come to compete here and now.!!!
