The next event is taking place in Berlin on on March 17 and 18 and announced speakers include:

“There are about 300,000 active business angels in Europe, but an estimated three million people with the means to be angels”, Angelsbootcamp founder Alex Farcet is quoted saying in a press release.
The event coincides with the “2nd Investors’ Dinner goes Europe” – an exclusive dinner where venture capitalists, investors and promising seed-stage startups from the digital media and technology sectors meet and team up.
This will be the second Angelsbootcamp event and along with Startupbootcamp Berlin it will be joined by partners and sponsors such as EIT ICT Labs, Technical University of Berlin and Media.net.
Tickets are priced at €1.000, but earlybird pricing is at €750 through February 15th.
