LUNCH AND LEARN
Becoming an ANGEL Investor??
Angel Investors are a key part of the Entrepreneurial business development cycle. Angels provide the base level support to move a new venture from proof of concept to customer acquisition and growth. If the growth is successful then the Angel has opportunity to profit, if not there may be a few pivots by the business but if customer traction does not develop then the investment is at risk.
Angel investing is always a learning process as the product/service is likely new and different, often disruptive and the firm is new and formative in terms of putting together its operational services. But if the product/service hits willing and engaged customers and solves an opportunity problem (Uber, Airbnb, Trip Advisor, etc.) the outcomes can be huge (Unicorns are new companies that quickly grow to Billion dollar valuations) even those with more reasonable outcomes can generate significant ROI.
The Lunch and Learn session will be held on Wednesday June 22 at a location on Hilton Head Island. If you meet the SEC criteria for being an Angel there will be a follow-on session on June 29th (Lunch and evaluate) a real deal from the SC Angel Network (SCAN). After that you will have an opportunity to consider joining with other Angels in SCAN and evaluating and considering investing in opportunities via a regular deal flow process.
The Lunch and Learn session will cover:
- Where Angels fit in the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem
- What Angels provide for entrepreneurs
- The potential returns
- The high level of risk
- How to evaluate the potential of new entrepreneurial opportunities
- Valuation and Terms and due diligence activities
- The SEC rules
- The Jumpstart rules (crowdfunding)
- Lone Wolf versus Angel Groups
- Does being an Angel fit your capability and capacity??
- Exploring the opportunity further
Sign up now to receive the information on the June 22 venue location (timing is 11am to 1:00pm.) The session is a quality learning opportunity where the issues and your questions will be competently handled.
Details of the June 29th session will be provided to those qualified and interested. There is no charge for either.
