Angel Investor on Why He’s Pumped for Shark Tank-Style Investment Contest in Philly

Forget Silicon Valley and New York, Philly is where venture capitalists want to be.

Philly is holding its own Shark Tank-style competition (called the “Lion’s Den”) as part of the IMPACT Conference on November 3 and 4. It’s a time when Philly startups will be able to pitch their companies to five of the region’s most successful entrepreneurs and active angel investors in hope of securing an investment. I’m proud to say that two of the “lions” are former NewSpring Capital portfolio company CEOs, Michael Hagan (former CEO of NutriSystem) and Jonathan Brassington (CEO and co-founder of LiquidHub). The others are Walter (Buck) Buckley (co-founder, CEO and chairman of Actua), Dr. Robert Corrato (co-founder and managing partner of Devon Hill Capital Partners), and Michael Wells (managing director of Princeton Biopharma Capital Partners.)
