Know someone who has a bit of spare cash and good instincts? Who would make an excellent investor if they could only get a foot in the door? A new initiative, from the team behind Startupbootcamp, will be kicking off in Berlin 7-8 June to offer accelerated support for potential business angels. And we've got a coveted ticket worth €990 to give away to one lucky budding investor. Read on to find out more...
Angelsbootcamp will serve up the sort of support that is normally reserved for startups – the two-day intensive program will furnish budding angels with the practical knowledge they need to take the first steps to a smart investment. The programme includes participation in a mock deal and covers key aspects of angel investing, including valuation, due diligence, term sheets, shareholder agreements, board membership, monitoring, crisis management and succesful exits.
Participants will hear from seasoned angels, including Brigitte Baumann, President Emeritus EBAN (European Trade Association for Business Angels); Thomas Madsen-Mygdal, investor in Podio (exit to Citrix) and Stefan Glaenzer, Founding Partner of Passion Capital.
If you know an awesome angel that you'd like to nominate, then simply Share This on Twitter or Share on Facebook, not forgetting to name your nominated person. Please read our contest guidelines for full details – we'll announce the results on Friday 31 May. Good luck to all you budding angels!
