On October 28, 2015, Schnader will sponsor the Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic 3rd Angel Capital Expo, a gathering of the angel investment community designed to foster collaboration among early stage companies, angel groups, and the larger investment community. Attendees will include over 150 angel investors as well as early-stage companies looking to make presentations and potentially win $100,000. Schnader attorney Elliot Dater will serve on the judging panel.
Featured presenters include 12 early-stage companies in Internet-SaaS-cloud technology, healthcare-life sciences-medical devices, consumer products, cleantech/energy solutions, software-security-telecommunications technologies, and real estate. There will also be six early-stage “Fast Pitch” presenters from various Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic partner technology transfer offices, college and university business plan/idea competitions, and local seed-stage programs.

K4-MA meets monthly in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, and New York to present rigorously screened candidates for investments.
