Understanding key learnings from the pandemic is the natural underpinning for this year’s conference. According to HBSAA co-president Jason E. Klein, “IPO’s, SPAC’s and turbo-charged M&A deals are fueling a surge of exits. Idled and bored workers are launching an unprecedented number of startups. Hence our theme – How can investors get beyond Zoom fatigue and EMERGE STRONGER?”
While Covid-19 has spelled tragedy on a personal level, the shifting landscape has laid bare new opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors. Now is a critical time according to HBSAA co-president Jean Kovacs, “Entrepreneurs and investors are wrestling with which shifts will be permanent and what it means for the entrepreneurial landscape. Investors and entrepreneurs need to think through these transformations to create provocative growth opportunities. Our goal is to enable all attendees to EMERGE STRONGER and better enlightened for what comes next.” Learn more about the Conference here.
The week following the Conference on May 20 will be a first-ever, one-day HBSAA Angel Bootcamp. The Bootcamp was developed to familiarize angel investors with key insights, trends and mechanics of angel investing and features experts explaining each area. While the principal audience for the Bootcamp is angels, entrepreneurs and other investors can also benefit from it tremendously. Learn more about the Boot Camp click-here.
