Workshop: Angel Investing 101

With Peter Adams, Managing Director, Rockies Venture Fund/Rockies Venture Club

Ever been interested in investing in startups? Are you interested in investing in companies both locally and around the Mountain West that are disrupting industry sectors with new products and marketing strategies?  And would you like to know how to reduce the risk of investing in these early-stage companies?

If yes, you’ll want to attend this free course.

In this 1.5-hour course we’ll teach you the basics of investing in startups and how this practice supports a thriving, year-round economy right in your own community. 

This is an introductory course, so no prior education or experience is required. Topics covered include a high-level introduction to essential elements of successful early stage investing, including:

  • Venturenomics – understanding how venture creates exponential returns by going against everything you learned while getting your MBA.
  • Liquidity Events – how do angels get their money back and how long does it take?
  • Tax Implications – how to get 100% tax free returns on your angel portfolio.
  • Syndication and working with other investors to maximize returns and startup success.
