Good morning, All,

Our next Breakfast with an Investor is tomorrow, Wednesday, February 18th,and our guest investor is Alicia Syrett, Founder and CEO of Pantegrion Capital, an angel investment firm that focuses on seed and early stage investments, and a member of several angel networks, including Golden Seeds and NY Angels.
