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. This webinar is a part of the Rising Tide Fund education initiative.
Achieving liquidity is always a challenge for angel investors, especially when the company may not have a clear path to IPO or acquisition. Creative approaches to structuring an exit include demand dividends, equity redemption, and mezzanine debt — all of which provide liquidity and competitive returns in alignment with the goals of the entrepreneur and investors. This webinar will explore creative structured exit approaches and dive into a structured exit case study from both the investor and entrepreneur’s perspectives.
