Angel Investing: Evaluating Early Stage Companies
Is it Possible to Predict the Success of an Early-Stage Startup?
For investors, this is one of the most important skills to develop. Most of the pitches that you hear sound great, but will the team really be able to use your money to make money? And for founders, it’s equally important to understand how potential investors are sizing-up your team and your venture.
In this session, Craig Mullett, President of Branson Group, will share some criteria that he has developed for evaluating early-stage companies through his experience as an Angel Investor. He’ll also share a framework for using those criteria to efficiently evaluate the investment opportunity associated with early-stage companies both during and AFTER the initial pitch.
A panel of active Angel Investors will also share their experiences in evaluating, and investing in early-stage startups.
