About Angel Launch
Connecting Startups to Investors since 2012
Angel Launch, based in Silicon Valley, produces events connecting startups to investors including venture forums, summits, trade show, parties, seminars, panel discussions and custom events. Events are open to everyone and are affordably priced. Many are free or under $20 and include dinner and drinks for high energy networking.
Founder of Angel Launch
Zahava Stroud graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Sociology, and UC Davis Law School in 1985, joining the California bar in 1985. She practiced law in Los Angeles as a trial lawyer and business litigator for 18 years before founding iHollywood Forum. iHollywood Forum has thousands of members, supporters, and attendees from across the globe. We host mixers, breakfasts, conferences, and workshops that have attracted thousands of attendees and connected entrepreneurs, investors and established companies. Many of the startups who attend our events have secured funding from people they met, found jobs or employees, or became acquired.
In 2008, we decided to expand our scope of connected entrepreneurs and investors to markets other than Hollywood, content and digital media. We launched an exciting new series for executive discussion and deal making for all types of entrepreneurs in different vertical markets. Our attendees are thought leaders and executives who include entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate employees who crave intellectual and thoughtful conversation in an elegant setting that leads to business deals.
In 2012 with the rapid growth of startups, we realized that entrepreneurs needed resources, education, live events, and guidance on how to secure angel investors. We created Angel Launch as our next venture.
We also produce dinners, parties, product launches, product showcases, and networking mixers where guests mingle with senior executives and then engage in dinner conversation in roundtables. Many major deals are generated by relationships made at our events.
We offer forums for diverse opinions on the most compelling and controversial issues facing the industry while emphasizing the viability of new business models. Our conferences and seminars typically attract 200 to 1,000 professionals for high-level deal-making.
We develop our programs to attract meetings at mid- to upper-level executives, ensuring that their sponsors’ prospects are highly qualified. Furthermore, we attract the best in class industry leaders to speak at events, which leads to routine sellouts and national press coverage.
