While building our new Founder University (Founderversity), we spoke to Angels and VC investors on our journey to ask what their challenges were.
One of the biggest challenges was a way to make sure potential or existing investors have the skills and knowledge to be able to make good decision when investing in tech start-ups.
We decided to build a modular programme, using input from experienced angels like Wil Benton (Leaf, Wealthify, Monzo), Cathryn Riley (Aviva/AA/FSCS) and David Murray-Hundley (The Grumpy Entrepreneur, early investor in Revolut).
Our plan is to provide a programme that has measurable outcomes, feedback from experienced investors and insights on what founders really mean when they're pitching to you.
Our first modules are due to go live imminently within our shop that give you an Angel 101 course, including how to set up, de-risk & manage your own deal flow.
