‘Shark Tank’-style competition on the menu at Chamber breakfast

Greg Brown with the Charlotte Angel Fund will kick off the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce’s 2014-15 Power in Partnership season at 7:30 a.m. Thursday at Trinity Oaks, 728 Klumac Road.
Brown will explain the Charlotte Angel Fund program and facilitate the first EntreRowan “Shark Tank.” Presentations will be made from local entrepreneurs seeking funding and a panel of angel investors will decide if they want to fund their companies. EntreRowan is the entrepreneurial development program jointly managed by the Chamber and RowanWORKS.
Brown provides CFO and business consulting services through Cardinal Finance, of which he is the founder and principal. He also serves as the administrator of the Charlotte Angel Fund, which provides equity capital to early stage ventures in the Carolinas.
Brown has over 10 years of experience in chief financial officer and chief operating officer positions with venture capital-backed private and early stage public companies, many of which have been technology oriented. In addition, he has 10 years of domestic and international investing experience with the venture capital firms Residex Ventures and Equity Dynamics.
In these roles he has been involved with over $150 million in public and private equity financings, and numerous successful exit transactions.
Power Curbers is the sponsor for this month’s breakfast.
The Chamber’s 2014-15 breakfast series will bring speakers to the community and provide networking opportunities. Sponsors will have the exclusive marketing rights to the banquet room and provide a five-minute sponsor profile on their company. Partner agencies will share updates with the local business leaders and address issues of concern for the entire region.
Future dates for the 2014-15 series are: Oct. 16 (Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker); Nov. 20 (Salute to Manufacturing); Dec. 18 (Inspirational); Jan. 15 (Economic Outlook); Feb. 19 (State Legislature); March 19 (Agri-business); April 16 (TBA); and, May 21 (Teacher of Year).
For those who do not hold a Power Card, the deadline for individual reservations is 5 p.m. today. The cost is $15 for members and $25 for non-members. The price includes the cost of breakfast and the program.
