2017

The Angel Venture Forum will look at a variety of industries, stages and geography. Our interests are varied and will look at both tech and non-tech companies in health care, healthcare services, medical devices, clean tech, gaming, mobile, internet and web services, software, hardware and more. The AVF Showcase is the culmination of three months of screening, education, networking, mentoring, guidance and due dilligence (by both the company on the investors and the investors on the companies). Through this unique relationship-based process, we have found that AVF is more efficient in soft circling an appropriate round of active angel investors for the best and brightest companies.  

Please see the list of companies selected for previous showcases:
