Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 21, 2006
As part of the $4 Billion flood of Venture Capital that visited Atlanta February 7th - 9th, LAUNCHfn, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm in conjunction with the Network of Business Angels and Investors (NBAI), held its first Private Equity Investor event of 2006 introducing 4 qualified early stage companies to an Investor Only audience representing a combined investment power of over $20 Million. The next Private Equity Investor Event is scheduled for March 15th. This event is called “Do the Deal” and it is held in partnership with the GA Tech Economic Development & Technology Ventures and the Minority Business Enterprise Center. Preceding the “Do the Deal” segment of the event, there will be an Investor Luncheon Briefing covering “The 5 Ways Angel Investors get a Return on their Investment”.
Selected qualified companies will have an opportunity to present their investment opportunity to motivated investors. Applications are being taken now and can be found on the LAUNCHfn website. To qualify for this event, companies must have good management, validated business models and a complete investor-ready business plan and presentation. A brief question-and-answer period will follow each company’s 10-minute presentation, and investors will be provided with an Investor Profile for each presenting company. Investors wishing to attend the Lunch Briefing and the “Do the Deal” segment simply need to complete an investor qualification profile and register in advance.
LAUNCHfn (LAUNCH Funding Network, Inc.) connects qualified companies (new and established) with motivated sources of funds to accelerate their growth. The firm has developed an extensive network of funding sources representing Billions in funding capacity. Together with its event partner NBAI, a 12-year old Angel Investor Membership organization whose members have invested over $23 Million in 53 companies, LAUNCHfn hosted 10 Private Equity Events in 2005 which more than 120 members of their financial community attended, and successfully helped provide five companies with nearly $2 million in funding.
