Helsinki, Finland - Well-known Silicon Valley angel investor and entrepreneur, Manny Fernandez was a featured keynote speaker at Europe’s famous Slush Conference in November.
In front of a packed house of over 2,000 angel investors, entrepreneurs and media correspondents, Manny Fernandez took to the Green Stage to educate the audience with his expertise on raising money using equity crowdfunding. Fernandez discussed his experiences in the Silicon Valley; highlighting the knowledge and tactics that some of the most successful angel investors and entrepreneurs in the world have utilized to raise millions of dollars online.
Fernandez became a prominent figure in the Silicon Valley angel investment community after founding SF Angels Group in San Francisco; a 32 member angel group in the heart of San Francisco. One of the early angel members was a former business partner of Ron Conway. After receiving significant international interest from angel investors to co-invest with SF Angels Group, Fernandez co-founded DreamFunded (www.DreamFunded.com), an equity crowdfunding platform that incorporates Fernandez’s angel investing background and his equity crowdfunding expertise.
During Slush, Fernandez invested an undisclosed amount into the popular Finnish equity crowdfunding platform, Invesdor in the hopes of “creating a strong funding structure by building a bridge between Europe and Silicon Valley” said Fernandez.
This partnership between DreamFunded and Invesdor creates a working tie between Silicon Valley’s brightest tech startups and Europe’s prominent angel investors.
