« The Dramatic Growth of Angel Investing »

by Kim Lavine

Corporate Money was a classic Venture Capitalist. His job, was to take inexperienced entrepreneurs like me and make me presentable to Angel Investors or any other kind of institutional investors he could find.

I was surprised to discover that many Venture Capitalists don’t have money! They are like a real estate agent, who advises you how to fix up your property to make it the most attractive to the widest variety of people, then puts you on the market, selling you to all the various buyers with whom they have contacts with for a commission.

You always want to go directly to Angel money before you go to a Venture Capitalist. That’s why New Money called me when he found out I was talking to VC Corporate Money: New Money was already interested in me and he didn’t want to have to give Corporate Money a commission.

The Dramatic Growth of Angel Investing

There’s never been a better time for small businesses to raise capital.

  • According to the Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire, Angel Investing grew by a whopping 24 percent increase over the previous year.
  • Approximately 48,000 businesses across the country received Angel financing in one year.
  • Total investment is up from 2003’s $18 billion to $22.5 billion, slightly higher than the total amount invested by Venture Capital in the same year.
  • Roughly 225,000 people made Angel investments.
  • Most popular sectors are technology businesses, including life sciences, software and healthcare.

Before I left Corporate Money

I did get an invaluable Business Plan Assessment from him. He had prepared a narrative like an Executive Summary, framing in two pages the nature of the opportunity my company presented, its perceived strengths and weaknesses, and an overall recommendation. This was intended to be a teaser that VC could give to prospective investors to whet their interest.

New Money devoured it with glee

I had gone from being rejected by my banker, to being fought over by Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists! What did they see that she didn’t?
