Nov 17th, 2016 – Seattle Angel Conference X – Episode 7 of 12
Bob Crimmins, the emcee of the tenth Seattle Angel Conference, introduces Evan Hiner, the Co-Founder and CEO of Prolaera.
Evan describes how the mission of Prolaera is to help accounting firms improve their required Continuing Professional Education system in order to attract, develop and retain the talent they need.
Evan explains how their business meets the unique needs of accounting firms and brings license tracking, learning plans and a catalog of courses in one simple application. Evan also shares about his team members and what their roles and responsibilities are in growing their business.
Harish Kulkarni, the SAC Due Diligence Lead, comments on how impressed he was on how well they have executed the design and implementation of their business. Harish asks how Prolaera can build a viable moat that can sustain the growth of their company and Evan explains how they have a data advantage that can retain the clientele they acquire.
Evan also shares how they are building relationships with state accounting boards that can give Prolaera a competitive advantage.
Prolaera is one of six Finalists that have endured a twelve week elimination process for an investment by the Seattle Angel group. Each Finalist has ten minutes to make their final presentation before an audience of angel investors which is followed up by a five minute Q & A session with their Due Diligence Lead.
After all the Finalists have made their presentation, the angel investors deliberate and vote on which business they will invest their time, money and energy into growing.
