FOOTHILL RANCH, CA, April 13, 2016 — Springboard Equity, Inc. today announced a partnership with Rockies Venture Club (RVC) to collaborate on a series of educational webinars focused on early-stage investing.
The first webinar, “Demystifying Angel Investing,” will be targeted to investors that are new to private investing and individuals who may qualify to be an angel investor, but do not know much about it or where to start.
“Partnering with Rockies Venture Club is a natural fit because both of our organizations are highly focused on bringing quality educational content to both investors and entrepreneurs and supporting successful deal matching and overall venture success,” said Lyle Martin, CEO of Springboard Equity.
Dave Harris, Director of Operations at Rockies Venture Club, added, “Springboard Equity is a great fit for Rockies Venture Club. Their online approach to early-stage venture investing includes featured deals that are pre-vetted, and their focus on educating investors and entrepreneurs to make smarter deals aligns with RVC’s mission. We look forward to this partnership and to connecting our two communities.”
“Demystifying Angel Investing” will feature a brief, 30-minute presentation and a 10-minute live question and answer session. The webinar will cover significant educational points and ensure that participants are heard and and their questions are answered. This will be the first of many webinars hosted by Springboard and its partners, including RVC. Both RVC and Springboard have pre-vetted deals available to explore, both online and at local RVC events.
“This webinar series is extremely important because there is limited educational content guiding investors in the private investment space,” Martin said. “With the rapidly growing popularity of crowdfunding and the maze of deals available, providing the right tools to investors so they learn how to properly vet a company is critical to their success.”
Future webinars will also include education for entrepreneurs to teach them how to prepare a company for a fundraising round and many additional topics that will serve to benefit both investors and entrepreneurs.
