Breakfast with Angels
Less than 1% of startups get funding from investors – what is magic in getting investors to believe in your innovative idea? This panel will discuss what they are investing in and the criteria they use to decide to fund longevity startups. Most entrepreneurs begin with angel investors who provide business development, sales, strategy, and their networks and experience. Increasingly, entrepreneurs are turning to social impact investors who view aging as a triple bottom line opportunity —financial, social, and personal—particularly meeting the needs of the large underserved and financially challenged population. The latest data and trends will be shared to inform the investment thesis of those planning to invest in the longevity market.
