Notes from the angel investing panel featuring Paige Craig, Gil Penchina, Jenny Fielding, Launch Festival 2016

Lessons from Angel Investors at LAUNCH Festival

Investors should focus on the middle of the portfolio.

It's easy to help a middle company become a top company in your portfolio. The top companies don't need your help.

Send your investors email updates.

Keeps you on top of things. Also, not sending email updates often times implies something is going wrong. Do it on a regular basis

Fundraising now is a full time job & you MUST show progress

You must show progress EVERY meeting. Every founder underestimates how long it will take to raise money.

Seed rounds are like dating. You go on a lot of first dates

A lot fewer 2nd or 3rd dates

Fundraising will take longer now

Know this is going to happen and prepare for it!
