Being a Director in the 21st Century

On Sept 29th the folks behind the Angel Forum are hosting Being a Director in the 21st Century – a confidential angel investor workshop for company directors and accredited investors. This unique workshop is designed for existing or future Board Directors and investors who want to upgrade their knowledge and interact with other active directors. Sorry entrepreneurs and service providers – you’re not invited. 

What’s an accredited investor in BC? Individuals who have at least $1Million in financial assets (cash and securities) net of any debt and before taxes. Or individuals whose annual net income before taxes exceeds $200K (or $300K combined income with spouse).

Why is it confidential? This workshop is being held in a confidential setting so everyone will feel comfortable discussing real “war” stories. Since confidential examples will be used – local companies where boards changed CEOs, failed to block hostile takeovers and ruined promising companies – all registrants will be asked during the online registration process to accept a simple non-disclosure/confidentiality agreement and to sign the same agreement before the workshop starts. Unfortunately we won’t be live-blogging this one.

Who’s speaking? Techvibes favorite Angel Guest Contributor Basil Peters and high-tech entrepreneur Mike Volker. As always, Bob Chaworth-Musters is organizing the event and will keep thints rolling.

How much does it cost? Not much if you’re an accredited investor – only $275 if you register before July 31st.

The workshop goes all-day on September 29th from 8am to 4pm at SFU Harbour Centre.
