Investor Connect Podcast

Startup Boards -- Becoming an Angel Investor

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

For those who want to become an angel investor to fund startups, here are some key steps:

Meet accredited investor requirements. You must meet the SEC criteria for accredited investors. You can see the specifics on the SEC website. In short, you must have a $1M net worth, not counting the house you live in.

Startup investing is risky -- angel investing is high reward with high risk. Be prepared to lose money as it’s a part of the process.

Learn from other angel investors -- read, discuss, join. Read up on the subject. Discuss with existing angel investors, and join an angel network in person or online to learn more about it.

Listen to podcasts -- one of the best ways I learned about angel investing was through podcasts showcasing investors talking about how they invested.

Develop your investment thesis -- determine what you want to invest in and why it should work.  

Meet with startups and start learning about deal flow -- review the documents and term sheets to become familiar with the process. 

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
