The second training session, called “Investment Immersion,” is scheduled for July 11-13 and will be an in-person multi-day summit to deep dive into the ins and outs of angel investing, due diligence, portfolio construction, valuations and management. In partnership with Sun Cruces Angels, programming will feature workshops, round tables, networking opportunities and pitch presentations by Borderplex startup founders.
