AngelCentral Masterclass Series Webinar: Angel Investing Workshop
This online masterclass touched on how an experienced angel investor thinks and how participants could go about becoming an effective and competent angel investor. It helped participants discover what it really takes to invest in a startup, removing the need for trial and error, represented by the usual painfully expensive first investment. The workshop was conducted by Phey Teck Moh, Partner of AngelCentral, who used live case studies gathered from personal experience to give participants a better sense of the strategies involved in angel investing.
- How to manage and construct your portfolio for angel investments. How startups fit into your overall portfolio, allocate your assets to ensure minimum risk with maximum rewards, and set your personal goals for angel investing.
- Insights into the lifecycle of a startup, the overall tech startup ecosystem and how angels fit into the space. What are the different stakeholders in a startup ecosystem, the full lifecycle of a startup, and the possible types of investments before exit.
- Generate deal flow. What are the different ways angels can be exposed to startup investment opportunities, including how to position yourself as a credible and useful investor, establish credibility and branding via consistent value-add, building expertise, and engaging with fellow investors to expand your network.
- Evaluate startups you meet. Understand the partners' personal framework for evaluating startups which resulted from years of personal experience and countless refinements over the years. This includes questions to ask when assessing a startup’s solution, founding team, marketing opportunity, and business model.
