How to be an Angel Investor

Ever wondered if you have what it takes to be an angel investor? Or have you dabbled in angel investing without a pre-determined method? Alternatively, are you seeking angel capital and would you like insight into the angel investing process and mindset?

If you answered yes to any of the foregoing questions, you may find the below presentation helpful. It is a combination audio file and slide deck covering the subject "How to be an Angel Investor." The deck was prepared by Naval Ravikant and Babak Nivi, the guys from Venture Hacks, for a Y Combinator conference. The audio file contains a recording of Naval and Nivi's presentation and is synched to the deck.

It is a relatively long piece - almost 30 mins -- however, the content is fantastic and I highly recommend you give it a listen.

  1. Right on target! Naval and Babak have produced such a calm, rational, reasoned approach to angel investing that they should probably be required to give up their angel investor accreditation. Whoever heard of an angel being calm, rational and reasoned? [grin]

    Seriously, these guys know whereof they speak..and they speak from experience. If you are considering dabbling in the exhilarating, terrifying, and completely illiquid world of angel investing, this presentation should be required viewing.
