The Real Deal Triangle

Other · 5 Members · Raleigh, NC, USA

Our Investment Focus

With an unprecedented national focus on entrepreneurs and startups, now is the ideal opportunity to bring together investors, deal makers, and qualified businesses in a new, meaningful and entertaining way.

10-10-13, a local live theater event will bring together investment grade companies and strategic investors in an entertaining venue for an exclusive crowd. Combining two familiar styles, along with some twists, the companies will pitch their ideas in front of a panel of dynamic investors; navigating strong personalities while being peppered with questions on every aspect of their business. Based on the audience's opinion of their performance, the companies stand to win prize money, services, introductions to key partners, equipment, and other vital needs every company has. But the real prize will be to convince one, or more, of the panelists and/or audience investors to take an equity position in their company “real time” during the event, propelling the company forward towards realizing their dreams.

WHAT - Part live theater, part networking mixer, part cocktail party, and part biz opportunity to see some of the area’s most enticing and fast growing companies pitch their way into a deal. For those companies who are savvy enough to sway the audience, additional prizes will be awarded based on their performance and ability to communicate excitement about their business.

WHO - The invitation only event will include, Sleeper Angels - qualified investors that have yet to directly invest in a company; Angel Investors/VC Groups – those institutional investors who have provided financial support in exchange for equity; Qualified Companies – after a rigorous application process a handful of highly qualified and thoroughly vetted companies will be invited to present live at the event

WHERE - Raleigh, NC

WHY - Spotlight the Triangles burgeoning ecosystem for entrepreneurship and investment. Promote and facilitate interest, education and deal flow for area companies and inject new life and funds into the local investment pool.
