ICT startup + angel = make lots of money!A prominent business angel from the Silicon Valley will be helping Scottish startups prepare for the angel finance journey. Thanks to Mike Clouser and Informatics Ventures, a cozy masterclass will be offered to 15 ICT companies on Wednesday, 4th November from 1:00-5:30pm.

The angelic instructor is Dr. Jim Papp, a member of the Silicon Valley’s Band of Angels and CEO of Podaddies, an angel funded video advertising company. Just to give you a reality check, according to our friends at Wikipedia, Band of Angels is the ‘oldest and most active angel investment group in the United States’ – not a small fish here.
