What is the Angel Investor Bootcamp?
Angel investors have to make high risk decisions with limited information. Early decisions about the people involved in startups – cofounders, employees, investors, and board members – are all vital to long-term success. Yet these decisions are often made without the benefit of a roadmap of the most important early decisions.

The Angel Investor Bootcamp provides angel investors with this roadmap. The bootcamp will tap research performed at Harvard Business School and USC over the last 15 years on 16,000 U.S. founders, and tap the accumulated expertise and wisdom of investors from Techstars, an organization which has invested in more than 1200 startups during the past twelve years, which have collectively gone on to raise more than $4.1 billion in follow-on financing. The bootcamp will also introduce investors to a crop of high growth startups that have recently raised angel investment and can share the experiences of their fundraising process.

Come learn which questions to ask during due diligence, how to negotiate a new round of investment, and how to mentor founders after you've invested in them.
