WAAN is very pleased to announce it is joining forces with Wharton Alumni Angels, Wharton's global affinity club for angel investing, to bring you a pan-European pitch event. We will have 3-4 startups present to our members on the night. More details on the startups will be posted closer to the time of the event. Each startup will have 7 minutes to present themselves, followed by 7 minutes of Q&A.
Members who are interested in further pursuing an investment will conduct coordinated due diligence through GUST. If you would like to review company material prior to the event itself, then you should also register as a WAAN member on GUST (please note that to have access to company information, you must self-certify that you are either an Accredited Investor, or a High Net Worth individual - forms are located on our GUST page). We strongly recommend that you apply to GUST in advance of the pitch event itself - all post-pitch diligence will be completed through GUST, so if you are interested in investing, you must register!
John Braze, President of Wharton Alumni Angels will also address our members just prior to kicking off with the pitches. He will give us a quick rundown on the benefits that Wharton Alumni Angels will bring to our members. After the pitch event, those that have attended, and are Members in good standing of their respective European clubs, will have the opportunity to join Wharton Alumni Angels for a free one-year membership (usually $250). Wharton Alumni Angels presently has 300 members in 22 countries and invests in about 10 companies per year.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to the event.
