CFC Media Lab – March 2017

CFC Media Lab was in Los Angeles on March 22 at the BAFTA LA offices to introduce five of our investment-ready startups to members of our IDEABOOST Investment Advisory Group living in LA. Rob Vickery and Alex Rubalcava of Stage Venture Partners hosted the event, which included a total of 10 investors. The five IDEABOOST startup founders — Pete Forde of ItsMe3D, Jonathan Gagne of Brinx, Adam Adelman of Mighty Cast, Amir Alikhanzedeh of MadLipz and Thomas Wallner of Liquid Cinema — gave their pitches, answered questions and demoed their products to this highly-engaged group. We look forward to doing more of these events with our investors in the coming months.
