Bethesda Green Speaker Lunch Series: WHAT IS ANGEL INVESTMENT AND HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY GET IT?
Angels are accredited investors who often provide the first equity investment for early stage entrepreneurs, usually ranging from $100,000 to $1,000,000. They are frequently experienced business people who bring not only money, but their experience and expertise to assist companies. Often, angels will join angel clubs that share due diligence and/or jointly co-invest.
This program will provide the perspective of angel investors about what it is like to work with angels, how to search for them, terms of investment, what to look for and how to have a good working relationship with them.
