FAQs

Angel investors are high-net-worth individuals and family offices who invest in early stage of businesses participating mostly in the seed round. Angel funding provides much needed high risk capital to the early stage companies, coming in along with or just subsequent to funding from friends and family. Angel investors are successful entrepreneurs and experienced senior professionals and apart from offering financial capital, angel support the entrepreneurs with mentorship, business networks etc.
A good angel investor, apart from providing financial capital- i.e. money- aids the business in multiple ways: being successful businessperson, s/he can provide you strategic input, can add value to the governance process as a board member, can help you navigate business and operational challenges through his/her established contacts, help you negotiate and strike important partnerships and can also lend credibility to your startups when later rounds of funding take place.
Our investors look at all stages of business and across all sectors from genuine start-ups to more established businesses. The key consideration is whether there are angel investors who have interest in the sector and they are convinced that such investment will yield them returns commensurate the Signiant extent of risk they would undertake.
At the beginning of each quarter, the team will conduct an initial screen of prospects to assess the investment thesis based on some set criteria such as scale potential, team strength, business and revenue model, funding need.

Subsequently, the team will conduct through commercial due diligence on the shortlisted candidates and further narrow down the list. A slate of startups thereafter will receive support from the team to present their case to the investment committee.
As a rule, angel networks do not charge founders/entrepreneurs for submissions and solicitations. We will typically seek to get a 2-4% commission on funds raised in the form of success fee.
Valuing a startup, especially at the early stages without established track record, is quite difficult and requires application of significant judgement. At the stage at which angel investors participate, established valuation methods are of little importance. However, investors mostly use rule of thumb based on the future funding needs, exit value based on transaction multiple from similar sector/deals and come up with a valuation that yields the investor a desired stake while ensuring the entrepreneur team is well incentivised.
An entrepreneur needs to ponder over the following questions to determine whether s/he should take angel investment in business:

• Am I willing to give up some amount of ownership and control of my company?
• Can I demonstrate that my company is capable to scale significantly in few years time-frame?
• Can I demonstrate that my company will produce a significant return for investors?
• Am I willing to take advice from investors and accept decisions from board members that I may not always agree with?
• Do I have an exit plan for the company which may mean that I’m ultimately not involved?
All information shared with the network is treated with confidentiality by the team. Should the proposal be shortlisted for detailed due diligence, the network will execute an NDA. All showcases are closed-door, invite-only events designed for an intimate audience consisting of only serious investors.
We look for promising start-ups that are working to solve a clearly articulated problem for a well-defined target market, with a strong and balanced team that has a track record of success in past endeavors, that has or is working to develop a product and business model with a sufficient moat that makes it difficult to replicate, who are in the market for Taka 80 Lakhs to 5 Crores in investment.
You can do both. Do expect that your pitch deck will undergo several revisions and tweaks based on our feedback.
We will guide you in providing reporting to investors post-investment and track your needs for further funding. When we get solicitations by international and institutional investors looking for investments, we will look to showcase you for such investments.
We look for everything from concept to growth stage.
