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.
