Angel Investing Demystified
Angel investors are considered by many to be the backbone of the venture industry, providing founders with much-needed capital and expertise. In 2019, more than $3 billion was invested in rounds that contained only angel investors. It is estimated that the U.S. has about 300,000 angels and about 400 active angel groups today, and those numbers are growing.
Despite this activity, even experienced angels — and founders — find themselves feeling like they lack key information to make the right decisions and to minimize their risk.
Attorney (and denter) Joe Wallin, has many years of experience in representing investors and early stage companies in their efforts to negotiate venture financing, equity compensation, and acquisitions. Joe recently co-authored the book “Angel Investing, Start to Finish” (Holloway, 2020) and during this fireside chat, he will help us all become more knowledgable about how to be a better player in the game of of angel investing, whether you are a company founder or an active investor — or both.
Some of the topics to be discussed include: * What angels do * Common mistakes made by investors and fund raisers * Finding and evaluating opportunities * Legal due diligence * Essentials of term sheets * Issues surrounding dilution and conversion
In addition, Joe will be available to take your questions.
