Join IND events! San Diego Bay Parade of Lights


GOOD: We have room for one more couple for sailing on a 70-foot charter yacht for San Diego Parade of Lights.  Must be an owner or CEO of an EBITDA company or accredited investor.  Our group has some of the most wired people in San Diego as well as Venture Capital partners, EBITDA CEOs ($100 million plus valuations, and more).

BAD: It a little cold here in San Diego getting down to 60s for our cruise.

UGLY: We have amazing people on the cruise, but I need a bigger boat for 2019 feeder events.

I am JD Morris your host for Investor Network Destinations (IND).  We are under beta and plan to launch in 2019. We have two goals.

One is to host special events pre and post great conferences and summits at amazing destinations.

Two is to provide information via our blog to help invest in alternative assets. During our beta our educational focus is on co-investing with venture capital.

Investor Network origins began more than 50 years ago in Washington, DC. with a group of like-minded investors that we would call a multi-family office today.  Investor Network Destinations is our next evolution to bring together friends, accredited investors, and family offices to invest in alternative assets.

Happy Networking and Travels,

JD Morris
