About Tim Kelley

Tim is the head head of Canyon Angels, a Phoenix based Angel investor group, and chairs the Entrepreneur College at Grand Canyon University.  Did you know… GCU is one of the few programs in the country to be attached to an undergrad!
With his extensive experience interviewing entrepreneurs, I ask him about what an entrepreneur looks like to him, what makes a good presentation, how I would know if I would be a good fit for Canyon Angels.  He also talks about resources for accredited Angel Investors and the types of way to get involved!
