Under the leadership of new CEO Brock Blake, FundingUtah.com is hosting its first ever speed pitching event for angel investors and entrepreneurs. The event will be held in Provo at the Marriott hotel. It will be limited to 50 angel investors and 10 entrepreneurs. This event shows how FundingUniverse.com will become more than just an online matching service for angel investors and entrepreneurs. The company will roll out all kinds of services to help entrepreneurs succeed, including events like this one. I keep telling my partners that Florida (with 26 investors and 176 entrepreneurs) is looking like a nice place to hold our next event. And we definitely need more people signing up in Hawaii (only 2 investors and 8 entrepreneurs), so I can start arguing for that location as well.
I'm adding David Hornik to my Blog Roll. He is a venture capitalist with August Capital (and helped with the Six Apart investment) and is one of the best VC bloggers I've found so far. He made one post about time management for VCs at 4 am. You gotta love that. Here's a post by Hornik--the best post I've ever seen on the value of attending conferences.

I won't be able to attend this event next week:
