VEF kicks off season with Super Angels

The Vancouver Enterprise Forum has announced their event dates for the 2010-2011 season and they’re kicking it off with an event focused on Super Angels on September 21st.

From Silicon Valley to New York City, angel investors are banding together and filling the gaps left by the venture capital industry shakeout. These ‘super angels’ (or micro-seed funds) eschew the traditional venture model and appear to be generating enviable returns in the process. But is this trend sustainable or are we headed for a super-sized seed crash? And what does this growing phenomenon mean for the entrepreneur?

Paul Kedrosky, investor, entrepreneur, writer and analyst for CNBC television, will lead the discussion with a panel of experienced angels including local investors Boris Wertz and Basil Peters, and Seattle based Geoff Entress.

Super Angels: The New New Thing gets underway at 5:30pm at the Vancity Theatre at 1181 Seymour Street. Register online.
