In the UK, a plethora of support for entrepreneurs is available these days. From the British government to universities to accelerators, entrepreneurs and startups see a great deal of support. It has never been so easy to start a business before.
In all of this, the second most component of the startup industry, the angel investors, are fairly overlooked. Where do they receive support from, where do they learn the trade and acquire skills? When 9 out of 10 startups fail, how many angels fail?
Angel Academy is London’s first angel investing course. We teach people to become professional angel investors and make a living through angel investing. The course will cover all things angel investing, starting from evaluating startups, valuations, term sheets, equity structuring, vesting periods, tax optimisation, legal matters, as well as exit strategies.
