Investor Connect Podcast

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

There are two ways to organize your angel network: member-led or manager-led.

Member-led groups let the members source deals, lead the investments, and recruit the members.

They hire staff members to handle the administrative tasks.

Manager-led groups hire experienced professionals to perform key functions such as determining which startups to fund. 

Managers also work on screening the deals so only the fundable ones go through to the members.

They also prepare the founders so their documents and presentations are ready.

They maintain communication with the startup throughout the process.

They lead the diligence process and produce the diligence report. 

Some angel groups partner with incubators, accelerators, universities, and other groups.  

The partner provides meeting space and shares the operational cost of the group.

Some partners provide administrative support.

The choice of member-led versus manager-led often comes down to the availability of someone to take the role of the manager. 

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.
