In a world where only the very wealthy, well-connected, and major institutions have access to premium investment opportunities, which have created massive wealth for a small portion of the population. The team at Urban Capital Network believes the key to closing income and wealth gaps globally is to democratize access to opportunities across the investment ecosystem.

Join the Urban Capital Network team for an evening of learning, discussion, and possibilities as we explore the basics of angel investing, the role it plays in bringing new products and services to market, and the impact it has on wealth and job creation.

At this event, you’ll learn the key components to successfully navigate the critical path of investing in private, early-stage companies.

This session is ideal for the following investment-related stakeholders:

  • Prospective Angel Investors who want to learn more about the world of Angel Investing
  • Investment Advisors (RIA/FA) who are looking for alternative investments for their clients
  • Entrepreneurs who want to learn more about what Angels are looking for in their deals
  • Entrepreneurs who want to meet/network with Angel Investors
