Bringing together angels & 4 startups trying to revolutionize next-generation travel
We didn’t know quite what to expect when we came up with the idea, two months ago, to hold the first Social Sharing Angels Lunch. But we did know that the current way of connecting promising startups with angel investors is pretty lame.
So it was a bit of a surprise that the unanimous verdict from participants was that yesterday’s event was, in the words of George Arabian of Steelhead Ventures, “a superb idea that’s so much better than the usual speed dating events” that fill the calendars of venture capitalists, angel investors and startup founders.
I haven’t written a lot about Cruiseable’s fund-raising efforts, given that readers are chiefly interested in our product, tools and services rather than our business model, but it’s worth a blog post to capture the positive energy that resulted from yesterday’s meetup, in case others want to replicate it.
