|Seattle Angel Conference | Bringing together Northwest Startups and Investors|
What is the Seattle Angel Conference?
The Seattle Angel Conference is a recurring Seattle Angel-driven event where the investors create an LLC, engage in due diligence of the applying startup companies, and ultimately pool funds to invest in one of the presenting finalists. The Seattle Angel Conference is the primary method Seattle Angel uses to find and fund new startups. The Seattle Angel Conference is open to any member of the community interested in learning more about both starting and investing in a new business and to hear the investment pitches from the finalists.
The Third Seattle Angel Conference
The Conference is the culmination of many months of due diligence, review, evaluation, and selection by the investors of Seattle Angel. The Conference is the opportunity for the finalists to make their best pitch for why their company deserves the investment. Anyone interested is welcome to attend the event.

The Conference Process
The Seattle Angel Conference process runs approximately 2 to 5 months from the time we first accept new entrepreneur applicants to the actual day of the Conference and the awarding of the investment to one finalist. We spend 5-6 weeks in Due Diligence.
Any entrepreneur or company with a great idea for a new startup business can apply to the upcoming Seattle Angel Conference. We are looking for businesses in all sectors. The application to apply can be found here, and must be combined with regisration and payment for the event.
After initial screening, an extensive due diligence process is performed. Entrepreneurs pitch to the group of investors and receive feedback. The investors form small deep-dive teams to learn more about each entrepreneur’s business and conduct thorough due diligence, both online and in person. A small number of companies are selected to be finalists and present at the Seattle Angel Conference. Each of the finalists has a champion or “deal lead” inside the Investors LLC.
On the day of the conference, each finalist delivers their investor pitch to Seattle Angel and all other attendees. Once all the finalists have presented, the members of the Investors LLC are sequestered and vote to determine a single winner.
The winner of the Seattle Angel Conference is publicly presented at the closing of the event with a check for the full investment of the Investors LLC.
