Mercer Island investor and entrepreneur, Rexford Hibbs moved to the Silicon Valley to pursue his dreams as a co-founder of DreamFunded.com, which has over 4,000 accredited investors. Hibbs returns to the Eastside on Wednesday evening, June 10 to host: “The New and Improved Way of Investing in Startups.”

“The purpose of our event is to find some great startups to look at funding.  We want to build strong relationships with VC firms, angel groups and incubators so we can co-invest in the Seattle area and most importantly, create jobs,” Hibbs said.  “There are some really great startups coming out of the Pacific Northwest and a great abundance of technology talent. We are looking for the next potential Microsoft and Amazon to add to our platform.”

The company’s new “DreamFunded Exchange” provides members access to equity shares in big name companies such as Uber and Airbnb purchased from early employees and investors.  The DreamFunded Exchange is a compliment to DreamFunded’s existing vast network of early and seed stage Silicon Valley startups.

“I take great pride in coming from a community with so many successful investors and hope to share my experiences from Silicon Valley with them.  I think it’s awesome that you no longer have to be a Silicon Valley insider to have access to some of these promising startups,” Hibbs said.

Hibbs and co-founder, 2014 San Francisco Angel Investor of the Year, Manny Fernandez will cover a variety of topics regarding modernized investing, including:

The JOBS Act and Regulation A+

Returns angel investors can anticipate from an angel portfolio

Historical success / failure ratio of angel investments

The importance of a portfolio strategy for success as an angel

Investing in vetted startups

Diversification:  Investing in multiple startups

Identifying the optimal check size for your portfolio

Critical characteristics of equity crowdfunding platforms for accredited investors

The event takes place on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 from 6-8 p.m. at a Mercer Island residence, Mercer Island, Wash. 98040.
