How Angels Think About Seed Investing

Workshop Thursday | 10–11:10 am | MECA

Demystifying How Seed Investors Look at Deals

This workshop is designed for entrepreneurs that are beginning to think about raising money beyond bootstrapping and friends & family support. It will cover what angel – or seed – investors will be looking for from you and your company. The workshop will cover the process for initiating the request to be considered for investment, the screening process, the pitch, and the due diligence process leading to an investment decision. Time will be allotted to allow for one-on-one conversations with members of Maine Angels to discuss specific questions and situations.  Entrepreneurs will learn how to prepare effectively for presenting to seed investors by understanding what angel investors look for in a pitch. They will also understand how to apply, the screening process, the pitch, and the due diligence process leading to an investment decision.

The workshop will also be helpful for people considering becoming accredited investors of startups.  Prospective seed investors will gain a better understanding of how angel investing works and how investments are made.
