Fast Pitch – Silicon Valley – May 6, 2014.

Join National Minority Angel Network in Silicon Valley/Bay Area as it completes its Fall 2013 Multi-City Tour of its highly successful Formation to Funding Investor & Entrepreneur Education Forums!



About NMAN Foundation’s Formation to Funding Academy:

“…we are assembling some of the country’s leading authorities  in each city and nationally to provide a diverse group of entrepreneurs a chance to work on your business, find available sources of capital, and network. Each workshop offers an intimate setting unlike conferences and larger events where you are one of hundreds vying for a moment of time with an industry icon before being ushered to the next panel. Each program is focused on only one topic and is a half-day program offering time for hands-on learning, networking and connecting with investors, strategic partners, and each other…”  Formation to Funding is the successful program model that changed the way you think about funding…” says Timothy Reese Founder, NMAN
