Nowadays I am asked the same question wherever i go: Why we have launched the Angel Miniversity?
It’s because we take our responsibility as India’s premier venture investment platform very seriously.
We understand and accept our responsibility is to build angel investing in the country, both in its breadth (number of people who understand what it means) and depth (ensuring both investors and founders understand what it takes to make an investment successful)
Through our years of investing we have come across one common theme: People join the network because they want to invest and quickly realise that they actually want to learn the art and craft of angel investing. Hence the birth of the format.
This is our effort at distilling the deep experience of the most fertile minds in venture investing ecosystem, in a crash course format, for both investors and founders to understand how angel investing works
The one day course has been designed in line with how an investment actually takes place: right from finding a investible deal (our ratio is 2% of deals that apply to us) to deciding on the investment terms, managing the relationship and portfolio through its investment journey and finally exits for the investors.
The sessions are conducted by me and my colleague Sachin Karnik along with seasoned angel investors and partners at funds. In the past we have had accomplished investors as speakers like Dr Aniruddha Malpani , Jitendra Panjabi , Anand Lunia, Sanjay Mehta, Gita Nayyar
The 3 sessions that we have conducted in Kolkata, Hyderabad and Mumbai have seen more than 100 participants and the feedback is consistent: in a single day the participants learnt more about angel investing than they could have through months of reading through text books, newspapers or courses.
We are looking to build this one day session as a regular format that will travel across cities and soon across countries, with a vision of 10,000 people attending this session over the next 2 years.
The next single day Miniversity is scheduled in Delhi on 7th December. If you a founder wanting to understand how angels think or an investor who has been planning to start investing, spend the day with us. This might just be the most fruitful day you have spent in a long time!
