Many early and later-stage opportunities are considered before we select the 4 to 6 companies that present at Member and Guest Deal Review Meeting. We know how difficult it is today's market to find truly fundable deals with scaleable business models and proven traction in their market. In fact, this is why so many and fund managers, venture capital and private equity firms attend our events. They have found our forums to be a valuable use of their time in seeking-out potentially profitable investments.
These events also offer an ideal setting to meet prospective financial partners among the investment professionals who are expected to attend. Experienced and professional investors know that it is in uncertain periods like this that sometimes the best investment opportunities can be found, and on the best terms. Now could be "right time" to start focusing your next portfolio investments while valuations make sense and most new equity dollars remain on the sidelines.

Investors who attend are seasoned angel investors or those investors with substantial personal liquid capital and are looking to be a silent partner in one or more businesses or take an active role in a company as an "exec with a check".  They attend our event to get an inside look at the latest in technology, services and products coming to market and choose those opportunities that best fit their appetite for risk vs reward.   They also gain an exclusive opportunity to mix and mingle with like minded affluent men and women who also believe in compassionate capitalism.   LAUNCHfn serves as an initial filter by reviewing dozens of companies' applications before selecting the 4-5 companies that seem to have the most promise.  Investors find they save significant time and money attending these events because so much review and prep work has already been done to validate the presenter's opportunity.   LAUNCHfn is not a broker dealer and does not conduct complete due diligence on the companies.   Investors decide individually or in conjunction with other investors at the event to make an investment based on their own business acument, investment expertise, and the sage counsel of others.   Occassionally, they will meet an investor at the event that who has or will be investing in another company and decide to co-invest with that investor in a deal that has not been vetted by LAUNCHfn to present to the NBAI community.
