The Angel Investor

By April 7, 2019No Comments

Looking for early stage funding for your big startup idea? In this Meet The Innovators conversation hosted at the Apple Store (SoHo), I speak with angel investor Brian Cohen, chairman of New York Angels (and a lead investor in Pinterest) and get Brian’s insights on how angel investors source deals plus how angel investing has developed out of what used to be considered ”stupid money.” I also get his thoughts on “wantrapreneurs” and the startup scene in NYC.
