2019 ACA Summit Agenda
The Incredible Journey of Angel Investing –
at Home and Across the Globe
New topics, new speakers, 30 concurrent sessions, and keynote speakers like Hardik Bhatt, Leader of the Smart Cities Initiative for Amazon Web Services (and angel investor) and Carla Harris, Vice Chair of Global Wealth Management for Morgan Stanley. Join ACA and 700+ angels for the gold standard professional conference for early-stage investors. Take home valuable, practical ideas you can use in your own investing portfolio.
This year’s theme, “The Incredible Journey of Angel Investing,” takes ACA to new topics and worlds, literally. About half of the sessions will be entirely new, so if you’ve been to previous ACA Summits, know that 2019 will be new – including private meetings with corporate acquirers, new (and fun) ways to meet colleague angels, and having professional industry analysts “tell all” about key industry sectors angels are now investing in. Think about it: are the kinds of companies you see today anything close to what you saw even five years ago?
