Primer on Angel Investments: The Entrepreneurs' Cut

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Discussion Points: The first pitch starts with yourself. Then its your cofounder and spouse and then its the Angel who makes or breaks your dream.

We, are still evolving as an ecosystem in terms of Angels. While the origin of it is in the Movie Industry, the essence of it has been lost in the fast paced technology industry that we come from.

This session covers the entrepreneurs' perspective of what to watch out for, when it comes to angel investments. What are the things you need to keep in mind to validate whether to raise money, how to meet such angels, what the expectations are, and to build the right relationships on get go.

Audience: Startups, Entrepreneurs

Take-Aways: Know about exits. Valuations. Termsheets and conditions when it comes to raising money. Expectations of an Angel. A list of Do nots.
