Module 110: Leading Investment Rounds with Karen Grant & Blake Laufer
1:00pm – 4:45pm
This module is designed for angel investors that are looking to learn more about the role of lead investor and what it entails. It will also provide investors with an overview of the due diligence process.
The role of lead investor can be a challenging one, especially for investors that are doing it for the first time. On top of analyzing the investment opportunity, the lead is also responsible for coordinating the communication between all the involved parties and negotiating the terms of the investment.
This module provides first time leads with a step by step walk through of the due diligence process, expected timelines, commons pitfalls, and tips to ensure that they will be able to efficiently lead a round of angel investment.
