How Angel Investors Make Money

Angel investors invest their own money in early stage businesses and make money when a company they invest in is bought or goes public.

When I sold my first company, my first angel investor earned 8 times her initial investment of $10,000. She got her return in just 2 years and it was her first angel investment.

Made 8x!

I recommend the Angel School to any angel investor, it is set up in a very smart way, combining theory, practice, peer2peer support, and experts. It allowed me to review and reflect on my journey as an angel investor, and to gain valuable insights, and to connect with other angel investors. A must for any angel investor.

Jessica Meher, Angel School Alum
VP, Enterprise Marketing @InVisionApp Startup Mentor. Speaker & Author

"Angel investment and venture capital can be a very intimidating and mysterious world for aspiring investors. There was no easy answer with where to go to learn or with whom to talk to. Angel School gives you a central place to learn about all-things investing in addition to proving a great network of male and female investors. The lessons are at your own pace and the content is very easy to understand. After years of "not feeling ready," Angel School is what finally pushed me to make my first investment."

Kanika Mehta, Angel School Alum
Product Manager, Tech Founder, Blogger

"Angel school has been a great educational and connecting experience! Its unique structure makes it easy to put theory into immediate practise by evaluating live deals, mentoring from active angels and expert hours with the industry's thought leaders."
