10 Friends, family & fools Angels Venture Capital Not accredited Unsophisticated Investing in a friend Passive 1-2 lifetime investments ($100 to $5,000 each) Accredited Expertise and personal money Active Investing in entrepreneur Portfolio of angel deals Limited partnership Institutional money General Partners active Invest in company Large portfolio Typical round: $10,000 Each investor: $ 2,000 Source: estimate Typical round: $600,000 Each investor: $ 40,000 Source: Center for Venture Research Typical round: $7,000,000 Each investor: $3,000,000 Source: PWC MoneyTree

12 Estimated that 90% of Outside Equity Capital in Seed/Startup Stage Companies is Sourced from Angels

13 An Angel Portfolio Strategy

14 An Angel Investing Strategy: Portfolio Considerations 5-10% of net worth (asset allocation) 8-10 investments (risk diversification) High tech, low tech, no tech (your choice) Variety of involvements –Lead investor –Board, advisor –Passive Most of ROI from 1 - 2 of 10 companies

15 Implications of this Strategy Net Worth Requirements (testing the SEC definition of an accredited investor) Return on Investment implications

16 Definition: Accredited Investor Financial position of investor: Net worth: $1 million, or Annual personal income: $200K, or Family income: $300K Assumption: Knowledgeable – capable of due diligence Can afford to lose invested funds Implications: Giving up regulated disclosure

17 Implications: Angel Investor Net Worth Typical angel investment ~$25K 10 investments = $250,000 invested 100% reserves, another $250,000 10% of Net Worth ($500K/10% = $5 million) Therefore: –Minimum net worth for angels = $5 million –SEC definition is 70 years old

18 Angel Expectations: 25%/yr Source: Venture Economics, HFRI Equity Hedge Index 22.4 18.7 16.5 14.9 13.2 0 5 10 15 20 25 Returns Seed Funds All Venture Hedg e Funds Buyout s S & P 500NASDAQ Historical 20 Year Returns for Alternative Assets

19 Implications: Size of Each Opportunity 1-2 in 10 investments will produce almost all of the ROI for the portfolio These successes must yield 20-30X ROI (Nonbelievers: Do the calculations!) And…we cannot pick the winners Therefore, all portfolio companies must demonstrate the opportunity for a 20-30X return on investment.

20 Integrating Exits into Portfolio Strategy VCs exit in 3-5 years (assume 5) Angels invest earlier and expect to exit in 5-7 years (assume 7) A balanced angel portfolio contains ten companies. Consequently, angels should invest in 2-3 companies per year – Build to ten company portfolio gradually – A portfolio of companies in all stages of development – Good balance for investors time

22 Economic Benefit from Angel Invested Entrepreneurs and their Companies

23 We have absolutely no data but Consider the following: Angels invest in 7-10% of all startup companies Angels only invest in companies that will scale – 20 to 30 times growth in valuation in 5-7 years – Employment created by these companies is high David Birch (MIT) and others have demonstrated that high growth companies create all net new jobs in America. Angel-funded companies create lots of jobs

24 We have absolutely no data but Consider the following: Anecdotal data suggests Angel Investors and the Entrepreneurs in whom they invest enjoy some very successful exits. Exited entrepreneurs often become angels Angels often reinvest portfolio returns The wealth creation from angel investing is spawning an even greater number of companies.

25 Post-Investment Relationship

26 Angels invest time in portfolio companies Angels bring expertise to portfolio –Business acumen –Vertical expertise –Financial experience –Director service Common roles –Advisor, Mentor, Coach, Director –Except in emergency, not paid consultant

27 Portfolio Considerations With many portfolio companies –Not active in all, pick roles suited to your skills –Let other angels serve remainder of companies As contribution fades, exit in favor of new directors, advisors Limit number of Boards to 3-5
