Seeking Science-Oriented Organizations to Participate in Chandler Science Spectacular
The City of Chandler would like to invite science-oriented companies and organizations to take part in our eighth annual Chandler Science Spectacular event, sponsored by Intel and Northrop Grumman. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, in Downtown Chandler.
Now in its eight year, the Science Spectacular will continue the tradition of providing opportunities for kids to visit a block-long array of companies presenting their products and processes in a hands-on environment. The goal is to expose Chandler youths to the many educational facets of science and technology, while helping them explore the application of science in the Chandler business community.
There is no fee to participate as an exhibitor. The deadline to apply is Friday, Jan. 25, 2019. Organizations interested in the 2019 event can
sign up online or contact Odette Moore at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-782-3038.
Learn How to Become an Angel Investor by Attending a Free Angel Investing Workshop
Last year, the City of Chandler and its PHX East Valley partners launched an angel investing initiative to enhance access to early-stage funding for area tech startups. As part of this initiative, free workshops are being offered for individuals interested in becoming angel investors. The next workshop series will be held in Mesa starting in January 2019.
Participants will be introduced to the knowledge and tools needed to invest in PHX East Valley tech companies. Led by Jim Goulka, Managing Director of Arizona Tech Investors, each session has a different focus. The first session will feature startups whose growth was accelerated thanks to angel investments, and it will also touch on techniques for evaluating startups with no revenue.
