SIGN UP NOW - Alibaba, Facebook and LinkedIn all had multi-billion dollar IPOs. Instagram & Whatsapp both were acquired at incredibly high valuations. These are the outcomes founders and investors dream of. A key element behind the success of these start-ups has been their ability to raise capital in the early stages, from angels investors and then Venture Capitalists.
What happens to everyone else? Common issues are that Founders struggle to raise Angel investment and many Angel investments struggle to get to VC funding. Many VC investments also fail.
So, why invest at all? Well, you often hear about the startup community. The great news about this community and especially the Angel investing community is that many of them are seasoned entrepreneurs, investors or advisors, who understand the struggle faced by founders and are fascinated by what the future holds. They also don't mind getting a return on their time and investment!
Come hear from active Angel investors about their investing experiences and what they expect. Most importantly, why should you get involved in Angel investing and how to do it.
If you are looking to raise capital from angels and early stage investors or considering investing, this is a great opportunity to hear what these experienced investors are looking for and how to meet their needs.
This signature Paperclip event is designed to create an active discussion with early stage investors who will share both sides of their experience curve, successes and failures.
