When investing, consider the company, not the product. Do the founders know how they’re going to reach their market to sell their product? Are they willing to make it a top priority?

Why is this a course for angels and not all investors?

Investors that represent large establishments (term?) have considerations that often compete with our primary goal of creating sustainable companies. VC firms for example must cashout on their investment by going public in a very short time - leading them to require that founders address an impossibly large market. This puts immense pressure on companies to grow beyond their capacity to manage and sustain at the expense of developing healthier processes - ultimately leading to a high failure rate.

We believe angel investors can align their funding model with the sustainable growth of their portfolio companies and achieve even higher returns in the long run. You don't need to go public in order to make a lot of money, you do need to first have a company with strong reliable processes that generate profits.

Will there be investment opportunities through SmartUp?

The angels circle is a program for learning, not investing. However if you’d like to meet our student entrepreneurs or resident companies to explore investment opportunities we’ll be glad to make the introductions
