Wednesday 9/22/10 meeting
If you have thought about taking your idea to the next level, into production, chances are that you will need to raise capital. The problem is that Angel investors and Venture capitalists don’t usually fund individual inventors but they will fund a business team. The trick is how to build a solid business team? That is where our next TBIC speaker comes in.
Boaz Vinogradov is currently focusing on helping Hi-Tech start-ups and Venture Capital funds raise capital and resolve strategic and go to market challenges. Since 2007 he has facilitated more than 10 deals totaling over $120M.
Boaz participated in the executive management of three Israeli based companies that went public. He is the author of three Internet / Cable TV patents which he sold in 2007.
As President of Nova Measuring Instruments, Ltd, he took the company from formation to $30M in sales. From 1994 to 1997 he served as an independent consultant to high tech start-up, obtained seven FDA 510(k) certifications and participated in taking Card Guard public on the Swiss stock exchange.
From 1989 to 1994 he served in various positions in Orbotech, making automatic optical inspection systems, based in Hong Kong. Orbotech was the result of a private company taking over its largest competitor during the 1992-3 electronics slow down. Boaz holds a Master degree in business from the University of Maryland & BA in Economics & Management from the Rupin Institute in Israel.
Boaz also served as an Infantry Battalion commander with a rank of a Major and is a director on the board of Entrepix, Inc.
It always helps to learn from someone who has been there and done that. So join us Wednesday, 9/22/10 to meet a remarkable individual and learn what you need to build your team!
Remember, starting October 13th we move in with Star Tec. Three weeks from this meeting!
