Rare opportunity to meet and understand angels

Angel investors are busy and hard to identify. I'm an active angel and the co-founder of an accelerator, and I still find it hard to connect with angels. This is a rare opportunity to meet active angels and understand what makes them tick. It's great content and a great way to figure out how to make meaningful connections with the guests on the show.

Entertaining, Thoughtful

The host is engaging, the guests have interesting insights, and it balances perfectly between insidery-business observations and accessible conversation.
