Event Details

Chicago Booth Angels Network of New York will be holding its inaugural pitch event on November 9th at the RISE Accelerator* in the Flatiron district from 6:30-8PM. Entrepreneurs will pitch to a group of Booth Alumni, who will then decide whether to invest.

Chicago Booth Angels Network is a group of University of Chicago alumni (and friends) that evaluates and funds exciting young companies that are in need of early stage funding. At the pitch event, companies will pitch to the audience, which will be comprised of seasoned Angel investors, alumni who are looking to make their first Angel investments, and those who are simply generally interested.
