The Open Angel Forum, a free, meetup-style event held by technology industry raconteur Jason Calacanis, is coming to San Francisco. Calacanis launched the forum in an effort to offer an alternative to all the “pay-to-pitch schemes” out there, and so far this year has already held events — through which five startups are subsequently matched up with angel investors — in Los Angeles and Boulder, Colo. The SF event will he held on March 4th and will be led by two very active angels, Kevin Rose (of Digg) and Chris Sacca.

One thought on “Open Angel Forum Coming to San Francisco”
As an entrepreneur the Open Angel Forum (which I often misspell as “Angle” suggesting a forum about obtuse triangles) is a great opportunity for young businesses to have access to real active investors. If the company is legit and is accepted then they know there is a real chance of getting funding without having to dole out precious capital. I think it was Fred Wilson that said “Spend nickels lke they’re manhole covers.”
