Exit Strategies for Angel Investors – Part 3

Highlights of Exit Strategies for Angel Investors – Part 3:

  • Fascinating new research on the data from the bankrupt law firm Brobeck – including 182 Series-A VC and angel investments,
  • Shows that “outcomes are inferior when angels and VCs co-invest” – it turns out angels and VCs aren’t that compatible.
  • Angels alone are “as likely as the VC backed firms to have successful liquidity events”.
  • The optimum strategy is ‘Angels or VCs but not both’.
  • Checklist to determine whether an individual company should be financed with Angels only or VCs.
  • It depends on how much money the company will need, how long before the exit, likely exit value and willingness to relinquish control.
