Tech Angel Forum - Introduction to Tech Angel Investing

Monday, 20 July 2015 18:30 - 21:00
Added by: Marina Atarova | Type: Conference | Price: Free

There is little doubt that tech startups are the most likely to produce tomorrow’s billion dollar companies, otherwise known as unicorns. However, investing in tech requires a degree of prudence as the risk is higher than most other asset classes. During this event we will tap into a few ways to approach the challenges of finding 'a unicorn'.

This event is for wealthy individuals, family offices, policy makers and seasoned entrepreneurs interested in investing in Tech.

Investing in Tech can be highly exhilarating. It’s great to be involved with businesses that truly change the world we live in. As well as being great fun, the potential rewards can be off the scale and therefore form an attractive part to a diversified portfolio, alongside more traditional low risk assets.

The mission of Tech Angel Forum is to educate high-net-worth individuals on how to angel invest and explore cross interest opportunities.

The goal is an increased access to capital & improved entrepreneurial success, a more efficient & fast investment procedure, a bond with fellow high- net-worth individuals, connections with innovation happening outside the corporate world.
