ATDC is proud to announce the new Angel Readiness program. Angel Readiness is an annual five week program to help company founders develop a realistic funding strategy and prepare for angel funding. It utilizes coaching and peer groups to provide personalized learning.
Coaches for the program are successful entrepreneurs and angel investors. Several members of Atlanta Technology Angels (ATA) have kindly volunteered to serve as coaches. Every ATDC company that participates in the program will have the opportunity to work with and receive feedback from an ATA angel investor.
Companies that qualify for Angel Readiness have a product in beta, or soon to enter beta. They have engaged with customers and have at least one team member working full time in the company. Submission of an Executive Summary is required to register for the program.
Through participation in this program, companies will:
• Sharpen their business model and value proposition
• Assess their company’s readiness for angel funding
• Determine if angel funding is appropriate for their company
• Develop a plan of milestones and deliverables to build their business.
Angel Readiness is now open for applications. The price of the program is $299. Companies that meet the qualifications are invited to preregister now for consideration of admission into the program.
Angel Readiness meetings will be held from 4:45 to 7:00pm on April 5, April 19, and May 5th in the Community Room at ATDC. On alternate weeks, companies will schedule 30 minute phone calls with their coach.
