“Scott Kelly did his usual amazing job putting together SF VC Fast Pitch. Yesterday is the third time I’ve attended this event as a panelist. The 25 startups he assembled to present included something for everyone from dating to e-sports to cyber security. I get invitations to more events than I could possibly attend, but Scott’s is at the top of my list.” Marisa Alma McGinnis Managing Director at Golden Seeds November 9, 2019.
“Scott is a ‘class act’ with a diverse background as both a past and present entrepreneur and as an investor. Scott’s regularly occurring “Fast Pitch” events are also great to attend not only for angel investors, family offices and VC’s interested in early-stage companies but for any individual looking to start a business or learn how to be investable. On a personal level, Scott is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor and fun about him too.” Jon Warner Mentor, Startup Board Adviser, Author, CEO, Educator and Angel Investor in Healthcare, Aging/Longevity and other sectors September 4, 2019.
“Scott is a dynamic entrepreneur/investor/Venture Capitalist MC. If you haven’t attended one of Scott’s VC Fast Pitch Events, it’s an outstanding event that any individual looking to start a business or raise capital should attend. Scott is very generous with his time and always willing to help the business communities.” Benjamin Frank Executive Vice President at Sunwest Bank September 4, 2019
“Scott is a great connector of Investors and startups. His events are the place every startup should be if they want to be in front of quality investors.” Brian Mac Mahon Head Honcho at Expert DOJO, September 1, 2019
“Not only is Scott amazing at helping entrepreneurs formulate concise pitches that resonate with investors. He also cares enough to actually ensure he is setting you up to for overall success. He does everything in his power to ensure you are at your 100% best when you step in front of investors. The main reason I highly recommend the Black Dog venture partners pitch event is, it is not a pitch competition. It’s purely business, no show!” Dewayne Ferrell Entrepreneur August 23, 2019
“If you are needing to fill out your advisory board or looking for funding, Scott is a great person to seek advice from. He has been successfully helping companies grow for many years. His company Black Dog Ventures hosts helpful networking events with venture capital firms and private equity players. I always gain a lot of insight at these and connections that have helped my business grow tremendously. I highly recommend Scott and Black Dog Venture events.” Melissa McGinnis CEO – Smart Angels Film Fund June 24, 2019
