What Investors Are Looking For

Ken Johnson, a partner in the Badger Fund and managing director of Kegonsa Capital Partners, will discuss the different criteria used by professional venture investors and angel investors to make their investment decisions. Ken also will share the type and amount of information needed to interest investors in a startup.

Even if your startup is still an idea on a napkin, it is important to understand many of the concepts Ken will discuss. There's no cost, but reservations are required. You can RSVP here.

All meetings are held from 5pm to 7pm in Room 121 at the Technology Innovation Center, Milwaukee County Research Park, Wauwatosa.
