When it comes to angel investing, I like to think I have a bit of an edge.
It’s not just because of my network, experience, or track record. See, those things are all important… they all contribute to my overall batting average… but I’d be lying if I said I was the only angel in my area with big wins on the books.
In fact, that would be doing you a disservice. Because winning as an angel investor isn’t just possible… it’s likely. Studies show that a well-stocked angel portfolio nets, on average, two to three times greater returns than the stock market.
Still, two to three times better than the stock market isn’t good enough, if you ask me. Luckily, I have an edge that takes my portfolio to the next level: I spent many, many years on the other side of the table, as a startup founder.
As a matter of fact, nearly all of the best angel investors started out as entrepreneurs. Last month, at the Angels & Entrepreneurs Summit, I spent some time chatting about the many “secrets” I learned as an entrepreneur – secrets that have allowed me to outperform many of my peers on the angel investing stage.
Check out the video above to learn what they are.
Until next time,
