Expert entrepreneurs are made, not born. For the last 15 years Dr. Robert Wiltbank, Professor of Entrepreneurship at Willamette University, winner of the Hans Severiens Award for Angel Investing, and CEO of Galois Inc., has studied what expert entrepreneurs learn in the process of creating new companies and new markets. In two books and 20 academic papers he and his co-authors have outlined key principles of decision making that distinguish expert entrepreneurs from novices. These principles have been shown to effect venture investor preferences, the probability of failure, time to market, and the use of capital. Based on years of research as well as practical experience, this webinar is essential for anyone starting or investing in a high growth potential business.
Angel investing is risky business. For both novices and experienced investors, it is critical to develop an investment strategy for your angel portfolio. Considerations include the amount you will invest, your investment horizon, diversification and deal structures. Expert angel leaders will guide you through the most recent wisdom of known outcomes on angel portfolios, how angel returns compare to VC returns, and the investing best practices of highly successful angels. Angels will get practical information to develop their own strategies and entrepreneurs will gain insight on the strategies angels apply to funding decisions.
