About the Event
Over the last couple of decades, angel investing has become a more serious form of finance. Private investing has suddenly become part of mainstream consciousness. And more recently, investors have redirected their criteria toward a more meaningful sort of investment.
In this online class, we will clarify what it means to be or become an angel investor, explain the ecosystem, go through the due diligence process and valuation of start-ups. In brief what you need to know and understand before your first pitch event is to feel confident and be able to question the entrepreneurs. Our investment strategy is based on UN SDGs and diversity.
We also will cover topics such as how to build a personal investment strategy, when to build it, how to use and how to improve this strategy. You have found a company that you like, and the Due Diligence outcome seems positive, how much should you get from the company in exchange for the money you plan to invest in?
Finally, what does it mean to be an angel investor after the fundraising round? Are you only investing cash or is there more into the investment?
