Dear Angel, Don't Write That Check...Yet!

Angel investors play a very critical role in the startup ecosystem by seeding the first check that validates your startup. This, in general, is the riskiest bet after the founders.

We want to encourage and educate new angels with the understanding that not every investment turns into a Facebook or Instagram. Understand the nuances of angel investing including risks, rewards, down-rounds, exits, and ROI. Understand where angel investments fit into your overall investment plans and how to manage your portfolio of angel investments to minimize risk.

Founders will learn how to present their startups better to angel investors by understanding their motivations and risks they are taking.
