Five Star Bank Tank II

Is a means to connect fundable startup and early-stage growth companies with serious deal makers in a private, invitation-only setting exclusively for accredited private investors, members of angel investor groups, venture capital funds and corporate strategic investors. The event, slated for October 31, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (so that attendees can get home in time for family-related Halloween plans) in Sacramento, features presentations by a maximum of 20 start up and early-stage companies seeking to fill-out seed, A or B rounds, or launch their next round after successfully meeting key business milestones. Investors interested in participating as judges or panelists should contact Jon Gregory, Five Star Bank Vice President and Venture Banking Manager. Investors may also contact him to receive a V.I.P. invitation.

Entities that sponsor the event may also attend (there are a limited number of sponsorship opportunities available.) Please contact Jon Gregory for more information on being a sponsor.
