Testimonials


Investors

I found the CAC 2016 event to be a greatly beneficial and well rounded experience.  By that I mean there was a high caliber of panelist, group participants, pitching companies and an overall well run, informative, and thorough process.  I’m looking forward to the next one.
— DEWEY GOLUB, FOUND REALTY
We were impressed by the companies that participated in the 2016 Charleston Angel Conference.  We formed valuable relationships and are excited to support Charleston’s emergence as a center for venture activity.
— TOM BASILE, GP VENTURES
CAC is a great way for an investor to be introduced to all types of companies in a wide array of industries. The investment process is collaborative, allowing for lively discussion and interaction with others toward a shared investment in one company and the opportunity to invest in many other companies as well. I was impressed with the caliber of participating investors and the breadth of companies presenting.
— Jenny Sullivan Sanford, JS Capital Management

We really enjoyed the CAC 2016 event. The opportunity to meet so many investors in one place was very unique.  The guaranteed investment at the end of the process also resulted in some very serious due diligence conversations versus just being an entertainment event like some other pitch contests.  It was also great to network and collaborate with other entrepreneurs in the Southeast.  It was a great experience for us and we plan to participate again in 2017!
