The Art of the Investor Pitch with Boris Wertz
Thursday, February 17, 2011 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PST)
Vancouver, United States
As an entrepreneur turned angel investor, Boris Wertz has been on both sides of the table and learned the art of the investor pitch. He understands that every good pitch starts with a great story and that you have to be prepared to pitch that story in an elevator, coffee shop or in a shiny board room on Sand Hill Road. Boris also knows what investors are looking for and how to get their attention.
On February 17, Boris will share tips to help you:
Boris Wertz is the Founder and CEO of W Media Ventures, one of the most active early-stage consumer internet investors in the Pacific Northwest. He is also a venture partner of Acton Capital Partners from Munich / Germany, a large consumer Internet fund that is focused on later stage companies with an established track record of revenues and profitability.
Before founding W Media Ventures, Boris was the Chief Operating Officer of AbeBooks.com, the world’s largest marketplace for new, used and rare and out-of print books which was sold to Amazon in 2008. Boris joined the company in 2002 after JustBooks, the German company he co-founded in 1999, was acquired by AbeBooks. He successfully finished his PhD as well as his graduate studies at the Graduate School of Management (WHU), Koblenz, majoring in Business Economics / Business Management. In 2005, Boris was the Pacific Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year award winner.
