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.

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.

"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."

Your angel investment strategy and portfolio will be unique to you. In Angel School we teach you best practices for building a successful angel investment portfolio from the ground up and help you build the best investment plan for you.
Beyond helping you build a successful portfolio strategy, Angel School will take what you’ve learned in our webinars or online and put it in practice. There is a lot about angel investment that can only be understood by hands on experience.
How do you read a companies cap table? How do you negotiate an investment? How do you know which companies is most fundable? What is it like to do due diligence on a company?
As a part of Angel School you’ll get to see behind the scenes of dozens of companies and connect directly with founders and other industry experts. Best of all you’re doing it with a group of women with the same mission; to make money and have fun along the way!
There are three primary types of people that enrol in Angel School. While not every student fits one of these moulds, these personas should help you understand who your classmates will be (and I promise, you’re in great company!).
