I am just learning about this competition, the Zino Zillionaire Investment Forum, but it appears pretty unique. Put on by a group of angel investors with a spin (they are based out of seattle). 28 companies will enter their competition and the $150,000 will be awarded in three categories. According to their site,
Zino is a premier membership, business and social network that connects accredited investors with entrepreneurs seeking funding. ZINO Society cultivates camaraderie in the world of wine and business with extraordinary people and experiences, crafting insider events, access to vintners, chefs and unique venues.
With more than 225 active members, ZINO Society is not your traditional angel investment group. ZINO Society’s unique investment meetings and social events provide entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase their businesses, and investors and business leaders a chance to a network and invest in a relaxed and supportive environment.
If their site is to be believed, this is not your run of the mill business plan competition. Anyone know anything about this one?
