Open Angel Forum (OAF) is designed to be a powder-keg of sorts for funding startups. The idea is to get the best angel investors in a given metro area all in one room on one night and hook them up with 5-7 awesome startups.
If you are looking for angel funding, please apply to OAF Philly, the next OAF event. Please note that you do not need to be in or near Philly to apply (just in the US). In fact, I'm specifically hoping we attract startups from unrepresented places like Pittsburgh, Baltimore, DC, Raleigh and Atlanta.
- Application deadline: next Friday, February 18 (at 11:59PM EST).
- Event date: March 16 (evening).
- Startup area: software, e.g. Internet/mobile/gaming/etc.
- Needed: at least a working demo.
- Application link: http://ye.gg/oaf.
- Cost to apply: $0!
The format for presentations is a five min demo followed by a five min Q/A session. Afterwards there will be plenty of time for talking with these angel investors (besides me):
Founder, i/o Ventures & Hot or Not
Founder, Mahalo & Weblogs (sold to AOL)
Founder, First Round Capital & half.com
Member, Delaware Crossing
Founder, Invite Media (sold to Google)
Member, MAG & real estate guru (former quant)
Startup veteran & sales guru

Former President, Green Rock Entertainment (maker of Cahootie)
Founder, The Trisiras Group

Also, Ed Harvey, Anis Harb, Michael Glozman (couldn't find pictures) and some others I'm waiting on for final schedule confirmations.
I would gladly co-invest with any of these folks because they're smart, fast-moving, hard-working and add value. I've actually already co-invested with Steve, Alexis, Todd, Fred & Ed.
If you have any questions, please ask in the comments. Apply already!
