Editor's note: ExitEvent and WRALTechWire are cooperating in presenting news about the region's entrepreneurial sector. Today, ExitEvent Editor Laura Baverman recaps Wednesday's "Entrepreneurs' Series" venture capital event.
RALEIGH, N.C. - If you think there's no capital in this region, then you should have attended Wednesday's Entrepreneurs' Series, where 10 national, regional and local investors made it pretty clear they're looking for deals in the Triangle.
Bull City Venture Partners hosts the series several times a year, and about 150 people showed up at Brier Creek Country Club to hear a fireside chat between ChannelAdvisor CEO and co-founder Scot Wingo and Andreessen Horowitz managing partner Scott Kupor, a panel of regional venture capitalists hosted by Bull City's David Jones and a panel of angel investors probed by ReverbNation co-founder (and an angel investor himself) Jed Carlson.
Some of the talk was expected—they discussed local deal flow, the amounts they invest, how they source deals, an outlook on the region. Other comments were enlightening and worth repeating.
So here's my best attempt at summing up three hours of discussion and insights from some of the most active investors in this region.
