Big Winners or Nothing
Angel Investing is highly illiquid and the outcome is unpredictable. US data shows 2.6X returns in 3.5 years from investment to exit. That’s a staggering 27% average annual returns. Angel investing is immensely rewarding but for the new and uninitiated, the risks of angel investing are high.
This Angel Investing Course was created with the aim to initiate new angel investors, to equip you with the skills to evaluate a startup and to build a community of like-minded angel investors looking to support the regional startups and potentially secure greater returns as a community.
We prefer not to just rehash information from American celebrity angel investors and books as the startup landscape is different in Southeast Asia. As such, we have invited a practitioner who has numerous investments in ASEAN startups to conduct the course.
