Ben Franklin Venture Investment Forum Capital Call is a new, quarterly, web-enabled videoconference that connects entrepreneurs in the BF CNP ecosystem to active, early stage investors in the region. Ben Franklin CNP entrepreneurs need an easy way to network with/learn about investors BEFORE they need money. On the flip side, regional investors need a way to be introduced to our BF CNP ecosystem that is as easy as sitting at their desk. Our 6/28 presentation featured Katherine O’Neill, executive director for JumpStart New Jersey Angels, a member led angel investor group that invests in early stage companies in Mid-Atlantic region. Katherine is also a founding member of Broad Street Angels, Pennsylvania’s newest Angel Investor group. She has served on the Board of the Angel Capital Association and was the Chair of the ACA national Summit in May 2016 in Philadelphia.
