Keiretsu Forum Pebble Beach President Fred Cohen announces a new, two-event series focusing on angel investing from a woman’s perspective. The series will be held Tuesday, April 4, 2017 in Santa Cruz and Wednesday, April 5, 2017 in Monterey.

“We understand even the smartest, most able women have questions about angel investing and entrepreneurship. I have asked a group of experienced and new women angel investors to come down from Silicon Valley and answer questions,” says Cohen. “We are partnering with CSU Monterey Bay, local and regional incubators and groups, and local business organizations to get the word out.”

Cohen says handouts at the events include a glossary of terms used in investing, sample Due Diligence reports, and more.

The panel members are from diverse backgrounds, and will discuss the skills women bring to investing, challenges they face, and how to dive into what is often thought of as an equity class dominated by men.

“There are so many smart women in the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay region,” says Judith Iglehart, President of Keiretsu Forum International. “We want to share our stories and keys to investment success at this two-event series featuring four short panel presentations. The presentations will be followed by longer open mic Q&A sessions so that women have the chance to ask questions.”

Topics will include: Why Angel Investing, Experiences as a new investor, investing with a significant other, and Learning about Due Diligence.

The events are sponsored by Keiretsu Forum Pebble Beach, Keiretsu Forum Global, and CSU Monterey Bay.
