Anthony Thomson

Serial entrepreneur and Co-Founder 86 400

Angel investors may take very different roles within a startup they decide to invest in.

It is important to know what the differences between these are and how they interact with the founders of the company to drive the success of the business.

7

Alinka Rutkowska

CEO Leaders Press

One of the key aspects of angel investing is being able to select the best deals. But getting to these best deals is no easy task. Founders, and especially the best ones will prioritise smart money.

Join Laurel Touby, Paloma Cabello and Susana García Robles as we tackle a very important subject, which is diversity and impact investment. We need more diversity in the ecosystem.

1

David-Cohen

Co-Founder and MP at Techstars

Analysing early stage startups can be challenging, especially when there is not much track record or documentation available. In these cases due diligence can have a narrow scope and limited application. However, a proper due diligence can render excellent results and discover hidden issues or great potential. David will help us run through the most important documents and questions to ask when looking at investing in early stage startups.

2

Alexander Jarvis

Founder of 50Folds

As angels, it is imperative that we understand the basics of financial models, underlying assumptions and revenue forecasts. Although for an idea-stage startup the information will be scarce, we need to know and discover the thought process behind each metric and revenue forecast. Alex does a great job in demystifying some of the most tabu questions for startups.

5

Paloma Cabello

Angel & Alternative Investment Specialist

Startups go through different stages as they grow up, attracting different participants and implying different kinds of risks. It is imperative angels know where they want to enter in order to have a consistent strategy. Moreover, knowing when to exit as the company grows becomes a key challenge as the initial strategy may be put to a test.

6

John Colley

Digital Business Builder

90% of startups usually fail. However, there are many common reasons why a startup does not succeed, some of which are easy to avoid. As an angel, one needs to be aware of those pitfalls before they invest, but also keep in mind that their help as an angel may be the reason a startup avoids the valley of death. We will learn why startups fail and what can be done to avoid failure in pre-investment stages as well as post-investment.
