According to EBAN (The European Trade Association for Business Angels), only 10% of potential European angel investors are actively investing in start-ups. We believe transparency, experience sharing and hands-on training will motivate executives, entrepreneurs and finance professionals to become active angels. Our goal is to motivate investors throughout Europe to become active angel investors thus supporting the European Start-up ecosystem, building companies and creating jobs. We will meet this goal by reducing the barriers that prevent them from becoming angel investors. This is why we have created Angelsbootcamp as a hands-on, interactive way for angel investing veterans and early stage venturing insiders to share the knowledge they have accumulated over years of executing deals.
Angel Investors have a huge impact on early stage company growth and job creation because they provide nearly 90% of all outside equity for startups. Angel investors tend to invest in companies with the potential for high growth. In 2012, European Angels financed 2.913 companies and created 17.881 jobs.
The more an angel investor understands about executing and managing the fundamental elements of early stage investing, the better positioned they are for generating greater returns on their investments. At Angelsbootcamp, we offer you the tools and experience to execute early stage investment deals to increase investment returns, grow successful companies and create jobs.
Business angels learning from each other
Angelsbootcamp participants learn through shared stories of success and failure. Battle scars will be revealed in a judgment-free and supportive environment. Connections will be made with other angels, many of which will continue to network and syndicate far after the event has completed.
At Angelsbootcamp, we deliver practical, actionable and relevant knowledge to the next generation of European angels – especially those aiming to become lead investors in the long run. Whether you are a first timer or an active angel, Angelsbootcamp is for investors who want to learn hands-on.
