Although many angel investor groups hold monthly meetings, in order to accomodate the vast size of the Adirondack region and the fact that many Point Positive members are seasonal residents, we are taking a different approach by holding two full-scale forums a year and an annual membership meeting each winter. We also expect to hold adhoc virtual meetings in the intervening months based on the strength of pitch submissions that will be availalbe for review by all members through the "Members Only" section of our website.
Point Positive Forums will include at least three primary components:
- Education through case studies and presentations for new members and others interested in the process of angel investing;
- Presentations by entrepreneurs who have passed through the initial due diligence process; and,
- Time for members to talk with students and other fledgling entrepreneurs regarding the types of business plans they'd like to see developed that address problems/opportunities in the region.
