The Goal of Angels 101

Our goal is to get you so well-versed and comfortable with the language and mechanics of angel investing, that you can confidently approach any early stage founder whose company you really believe in, and secure yourself an investment that could change your life, no matter how small your cheque.

What you'll Learn

After Angels 101, you'll be able to:

Develop an industry-specific investment thesis.

Understand how Convertible Notes and SAFEs work.

Understand how the Priced Round works (Convertible Preferred Shares).

Understand how equity in a Company's option plan works.

Persuade a founder to let you invest in their early-stage company.


Taught by someone who's done it.
