"My overall experience with GOA was very positive. Tarby and his GOA coaches are very professional about helping us prepare and practice our 15 min pitch, as well as putting us in front of 30-40 real Angel Investors. I now have about a dozen of these GOA Investors that are active prospects having expressed interest in my venture. These people could potentially blossom into long-term ongoing relationships as well. The ball is now in my court to convert these prospects into actual investors. All in, Gathering of Angels offers a good bang for the buck, Thank you Tarby" June 10 GOA Presenter Craig Berger, AVID Realty Partners 314-495-6665

Dr. Tony McClain, CEO, McClainTech Enterprise. “GOA is an amazing organization! I highly recommend Tarby and his team to anyone seeking investors for their business venture. The forum is highly structured and organized. Tarby is a incredible mentor as presenters prepare for the GOA presentation, and he is a great facilitator during the GOA event!
The post-presentation investor feedback is priceless! The investors are personable, and they provide a clear and honest assessment of both the presentation and the business venture. Viewing one’s unique business proposition through the lens of investors provides invaluable information and insight that is not easily obtained through alternative channels. Arguably, the investor feedback is just as important as the funding!
Following the GOA presentation, I am fortunate to have created investor interest in McClainTech products. I am grateful for the opportunity to present McClainTech Enterprise at the Gathering of Angels! Thank you GOA!”
