KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year the Angel Capital Association(ACA), the world's leading professional association for angel investors, dedicates two days for its most active angel investor members to meetup and develop strategies to address the most compelling angel investor issues they face. On November 9th and 10th angel investors from across North America will unite in New Orleans, LA, the heart of the growing post-Katrina renaissance. The local event host is the fast-growing NO/LA Angel Network (NO/LAAN), whose membership has grown to 114 angel investors in less than two years with investments totaling more than $2M in local startups. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Michael Hecht, CEO of Greater New Orleans Inc., will open the event with a keynote about the renaissance of New Orleans and its new startup scene on Thursday.
"The Angel Insight Exchange includes expert presenters who tee up the issues that highly active angel investors care most about—such as metrics and deal terms. Topics are followed by in depth, small group discussion so attendees can build both actionable strategies and grow their network of peer advisors," said Marianne Hudson, ACA Executive Director.
