Creating Your Own Angel Investor Group: A Guide for Emerging and Frontier Markets aims to educate entrepreneurs and angels from around the globe.
It offers hands-on examples and useful templates, such as financial worksheets, application forms, term sheets, contracts, and checklists.
An update of the Kauffman Foundation's 2004 guidebook, which targeted a U.S. audience, this international edition is written specifically for newcomers to angel investing, and highlights the successes and challenges of angel groups in emerging and frontier markets.
The reader is invited to discover the steps needed to assess one's community, identify risks, and address factors that may lead to failure.
Practical advice for setting up and running an angel network is illustrated from examples of new angels from around the world.
More technical topics about the investment process (such as due diligence, valuation, and deal structuring) are addressed briefly, and readers are directed to materials and courses with more thorough guidance on these issues.
