 KEIRETSU FORUM GUEST GUIDE

Thank you for your presence and active participation which will ensure you receive full benefit from our meeting.

We appreciate any feedback on how we can improve our services to provide members with more benefits and valuable experiences, please email us at info@keiretsuforum.net

WHAT IS KEIRETSU?

Keiretsu Forum was founded in 2000 by Randy Williams to help investors make better decisions through “mindshare” while providing entrepreneurs with value-added resources and access to capital.  Keiretsu Forum (K4) Members are successful senior executives, business leaders, and serial entrepreneurs, all with outstanding scorecards. The hallmark of Keiretsu Forum is its diverse membership and quality deal flow, as well as its charitable activities.  Keiretsu Forum is the largest, and most active angel community in the world.  We strive to ensure that the experiences of our members and guests at Forum meetings are appropriate and positive.

VISITOR EXPECTATIONS

Guests are welcome to attend Keiretsu Forum meetings if invited by a K4 Member or Keiretsu Forum team member.  A guest is either a future presenter and/or an active private equity investor (a potential member).  Guests may attend two meetings before applying for membership or submitting their company for consideration to present.  Our annual Investor Capital Expo brings hundreds of K4 members, accredited investor guests, sponsors, and partners together for a full day of early-stage presentations and educational content.

NON-SOLICITATION
GUIDELINES

To ensure a positive experience for all, guests may not solicit presenting candidates, Keiretsu members, or other attendees.  Guests who violate this policy will be asked to leave the meeting.

BUSINESS
CARDS

We are a community of investors and entrepreneurs with common passions, not a conventional networking group.  We welcome information exchange in an atmosphere of discovery that builds community.  However, please exercise discretion with business card distribution by waiting until you are asked.

BASIC MEETING ETIQUETTE

We value everyone’s participation and the speaker’s time, so we encourage staying for the entire meeting.  We also encourage “mind share” – discussions congruent with the facilitated topics for mutual edification.  To support our meeting objectives, please silence your communication devices.

FORUM INTRODUCTIONS

During the Forum, we facilitate brief introductions between presentations in which some attendees are afforded an opportunity to participate.  We suggest that you be prepared to deliver a brief 30 second vignette addressing the personal and business passions which motivate you should you be called on.
