It can be difficult to get started as a new angel, so our investors have come to really appreciate the networking opportunities we provide with our platform.

Collectively, our investors represent a lot of talent — and a lot of experience. They’ve bet on thousands of companies and have enjoyed hundreds of exits. These guys and gals have learned a lot along the way and are more than happy to share their expertise with anyone who asks.

Specifically, we asked them this question:

  1. Get Help
  2. Focus on the People
  3. Do Your Research
  4. Focus on Your Exit Strategy
  5. Diversify
  6. Keep Ego Out of It
  7. Treat It Like an Investment
