The next step for angel investors.

Yesterday I signed documents to invest in a Nordic VC fund.

I was hesitant at first. It is more money than I usually invest in startups and I am stepping outside my comfort zone.

However, it is a necessary step.

Angel investing is risky, startups fail 90% of the time.

In order to reduce the risk, angels continuously look for better companies, startups with traction, validation, revenue, solid teams, and so on.

What else can angel investors do? Invest smaller amounts in many companies, co-invest with other angel investors and try to invest in VC funds.

Founders who are raising money, keep in mind that you are competing with other startups also raising money.

You are also competing with VC funds that are also raising money from the same investors.

So how can you be a solid candidate for angel investors?

Let me know your thoughts.
