Do Angel Investors Actually Make Money? Part 2

We are delighted to have had the opportunity to organize Part 2 of the “Do Angel Investors Actually Make Money?” with none other than Oliver Woolley (CEO and Co-Founder of Envestors) and Professor Colin Mason (Professor of Entrepreneurship at Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow).

For an angel investor who wishes to invest in this exciting world of start-ups, whether they are new or experienced this event is a must watch.

Oliver started the webinar by talking about his recent research findings on investment returns from angel investing. The research, conducted by the UKBAA and nine angel networks, gathered performance data the UK’s leading angel investors who, collectively, invested £65m+ in over 1,500 companies over 10+ years.

Following this there was a talk by Colin, who was all set to challenge the view that “a good investment will find its own exit”. Compared to the advice that is available to business angels on how to make an investment there is little discussion on the exit process. But there is no return if there is no exit. He suggested that angels need to take a proactive approach to the exit process.
