Here at Accelerating Asia, we've been working on something special....introducing Angel360, our new 6-week virtual program to level up your Angel Investing in partnership with angel networks from across the region including ANGIN, Angel Hub, Bangladesh Angel Network, Phandeeyar and Draper Startup House.

We're guided by the belief that entrepreneurs are one of humanity's greatest catalysts for positive change. For us, Angel Investors are important contributors to this mission. As often the first investor or advisor into a startup Angel Investors are critical to support early-stage founders and develop strong, healthy startup ecosystems across the region.

Supporting more great angel investors with the tools, networks, and resources was a key driver behind the creation of Angel360.

The curriculum of Angel360 was designed with our recent conversations with partners and investors as well as our own work across the region with Angel Investors in mind. From these interactions, we realised that Investors who are getting started or have only made a handful of investments have some common questions – including:

  • How to source and choose a startup?
  • What should my investment thesis look like?
  • What due diligence should I do?  
  • What type of paperwork and contract should I use?
  • Once I invest, how should I keep track of my portfolio?
  • What happens if a startup is acquired?

Angel360 addresses these questions by covering key topics including sourcing startups, determining valuations, managing a portfolio, negotiating terms and establishing a reputation as a leading angel. It is informed by Accelerating Asia’s market insights into the ecosystem from the team’s experience sourcing startups, managing investments and working with partners including Venture Capital funds, Angel networks and innovation hubs.

Angel360 is a 6-week course that includes live workshops and Q&A sessions with access and the opportunity to ask a team of Venture Capitalists and experienced angels questions on key topics. Along the way, we will be joined by our guest hosts and the Angel360 team who have been involved in over 150 deals and over 10 exits to deliver Angel360 including:

  • Wei Qing Jen, CEO & Co-Founder Vybes (Sequoia backed), Angel Investor with exits, ex McKinsey/Temasek
  • Jenn Villalobos, Angel Investor and Startup Mentor, Former Google & YouTube
  • Krish Sridhar, Founder & CEO, KNOW and Former Leader, McKinsey’s Digital Labs in Asia
  • Osman Ahmed, Angel Investor and experienced telecommunications professional

Live sessions for Angel360 start on November 17. More details on Angel360 are available here if you know anyone who is interested in joining or you yourself would like to be a part of Angel360.
