Why are VC’s moving to lager stages?• Equal time of due diligence for smaller investments but lower potential of fast returns• Financial return is the main motivation• Companies in seed phase need as much mentoring as cash• Historically low track record in returns on investment in seed• Bubble and current crisis will increase this trend 5
About Business Angels• Investment 25 000 - 250 000 euro• Willing to share their managerial skills, specialist knowledge and networks• No sector preference• Often prefer to invest in their region of residence• Seeking profit, but also fun• Usually total investments below 15% of wealth• Can become involved in the business (“active Angel”) or not (“passive Angel”). 6
THE CONTRIBUTION OF BUSINESS ANGELS• 2 wings: capital + mentoring/coaching• Invest early – take a higher risk and in different sectors• More flexible and reactive than other investors• BA give access to networks and new potential customers and act as ambassador for the business• Easier to raise follow-on funding 7
What business angels look for• Current & comprehensive Business Plan• Strong & committed Management Team• Environment and market• High growth / scalable / strong business forecast (5m€/3yrs)• Intellectual property protection• Realistic pre-money valuation• Exit strategy• BUT Entrepreneur‟s qualities are most important 8
