Angel Group 2.0

Angel Group 2dot0I recently did a deck and moderated a talk at the Angel Capital Association Leadership Conference in Boston about ways angel groups may evolve to adapt to changing market conditions over the coming years, particularly crowdfunding platforms allowing for new kinds of less-traditional investing (i.e. less contact with the companies, potentially less value-add, larger, less-tightly integrated syndicates). The observations represent the thinking of the leaders of some of largest groups in California, Massachusetts, Texas.  I have been asked repeatedly to share the slides, so here they are (email readers can access them here). PS: thanks to George McQuilken of Angel Investing News for the nice write up on this. Maia Heymann of Common Angels, Ralph Meyers of TechCoast Angels and Jamie Rhodes of Central Texas Angel Network were awesome to work with and brainstorm with.
