Heartland Angels New Member Presentation

  1. 1. New Member Informational Deck
  2. 2. What does an angel group do? • It reviews, qualifies and invests together in LLC funded startup companies, combining member skills and benefiting from each other’s knowledge and experience.
  3. 3. What does the government require to be an angel investor? • Net worth, excluding your house, of $1M • Annual income of $200K ($300K for husband & wife)
  4. 4. Angel groups operate differently. • As long as the annual membership due is paid, a Heartland investor can pass on every offered monthly startup deal. • Some angel groups require a minimum number of yearly investments. • In others, you must contribute X amount to a pool which is invested by majority vote. Look for the right fit!
  5. 5. What are the membership requirements? • Heartland Accredited Membership dues are $2,000 annually • The investment minimum for companies that you do decide to invest in is $10,000 each • There is no minimum required investment per year • You do not need a current member to recommend you • You do not need a specific amount of investing experience
  6. 6. How do you connect with other members? • At Heartland, there are monthly startup presentations, group phone calls about potential investments, committee meetings and occasional social events. • How time-consuming is Heartland angel investing? • Spend only 2 to 3 hours attending all or only a few of the monthly presentations. • Or spend more time each month as part of the group that analyzes and digs deeply into the feasibility of investing in the startup that presented.
  7. 7. What’s the process for reviewing a new startup? • At Heartland, the evaluation procedure to fund a startup is a detailed, comprehensive, lengthy process. • It doesn’t guarantee a startup’s success, but it reduces the risk of investing in a poorly thought out or managed startup idea. • Initial Screening • SWOT Analysis • Group Discussions • Phone Calls • Due Diligence
  8. 8. Rewards of an angel investment • A successful startup can return 3x, 10x or even 100x of an investor’s original money. • Investors, of course, all hope for the next Google or Apple. • However, some startups fail and investors lose all of their original funding. • Investing in individual startups is a risky undertaking. To minimize this risk, you need gradually to build a diversified portfolio by investing in 20 to 30 startups.
  9. 9. Benefits of membership • At Heartland, it’s not just about money, but it’s about getting to know other professionals and forming new friendships • We offer abundant volunteer opportunities for you to use your expertise • Heartland is a unique experience for learning, investing, helping startups grow and enjoying business camaraderie.
