Angel Funding Part 2 – Due Diligence: Navigating People, Processes and Promises

April 18 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

at UMASS Lowell IHUB

Free - $35

You did it: you’ve got some customers, you’ve pitched, you’ve networked, you’ve grown… but now what?

There’s a whole lot to understand between pitching to an Angel Group and the final handshake. We’ll walk you through the post pitching inquiry process, due diligence rounds and how they differ from group to group: from high level overviews, to in-depth analyses of every number, customer and flaw, our Angel experts will let you in on what they expect, hope for and get turned off by so you can be prepared. We recommend for you to have attended our ‘Apply for Angel Funding with an Investor’s Perspective’ workshop. 

To prepare for this workshop, you can read Christopher Mirabile’s Inc article: ‘Rites of Passage: What Investors Mean By Due Diligence’
