On Saturday, April 28, three Pasadena Angels joined the graduating class of Executive MBA program at the Marshall School of Business to give the students an inside view of how the Angel process works.
Chris Wadden, Stender Sweeney and Barry Paulk joined Professor Tom O’Malia’s class to judge pitches from Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies students in order to let the E-MBA students see both side of the Angel process — what its like to pitch and what its like to evaluate early stage companies. Chris O’Connell presented his company, ClearPath, which is a spin-out of USC that brings 5 years of research and 2 patents to the world of travel and delivery efficiency here in LA and soon to be nationwide. Alfred Chung presented his company, Site Unseen, which opens up street art to anyone with a smart phone. Timothy (Levi) Kinnard introduced Daily 2K, a competitive new twist on eating right each and every day.
Students in the E-MBA class were able to view the pitches, listen to the Pasadena Angels questions and comments and query the presenters and judges themselves. Many questions centered around the process itself and how the students could learn more about the Pasadena Angels. To that end, students from Universities around town are welcome to attend a Pasadena Angels screening meeting, held on the last Wednesday of each month.
