Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
In angel investing the two basic approaches are generalist and specialist.
The generalist funds across all sectors but with certain criteria focused on growth rates, team composition, or monetization models such as recurring revenue.
The second is a specialist who narrows the focus to a specific industry vertical or application.
The generalist has many deals to choose from while the specialist has a limited supply.
The generalist must deal with more markets and segments and often focuses on providing value through the business model rather than industry knowledge.
The specialist brings domain knowledge and can provide more value through contacts in the industry and application-specific advice.
The trend in the industry is to move to either a generalist approach in which one places a large number of investments to find a hit, or to move into a specialist role and provide more value to a smaller number of deals.
