One of Silicon Valley’s most successful angel investors shares his rules for investing in startups.
There are two ways to make money in startups: create something valuable—or invest in the people that are creating valuable things.
Over the past twenty-five years, Jason Calacanis has made a fortune investing in creators, spotting and helping build and fund a number of successful technology startups—investments that have earned him tens of millions of dollars. Now, in this enlightening guide that is sure to become the bible for twenty-first century investors, Calacanis takes potential angels step-by-step through his proven method of creating massive wealth: startups.
As Calacanis makes clear, you can get rich—even if you came from humble beginnings (his dad was a bartender, his mom a nurse), didn’t go to the right schools, and weren’t a top student. The trick is learning how angel investors think. Calacanis takes you inside the minds of these successful moneymen, helping you understand how they prioritize and make the decisions that have resulted in phenomenal profits. He guides you step by step through the process, revealing how leading investors evaluate new ventures, calculating the risks and rewards, and explains how the best startups leverage relationships with angel investors for the best results.
Whether you’re an aspiring investor or a budding entrepreneur, Angel will inspire and educate you on all the ins of outs. Buckle up for a wild ride into the world of angel investing!
I highlighted so many things... it's kind of embarrassing
Thanks for writing this book Jason. After reading countless blog articles, watching numerous interviews, and listening to too many podcasts on angel investing, I mistakingly assumed I knew all there was to know. I was wrong. I highlighted an embarrassing amount of items and you most likely made the difference between me being a 1x-er and a 10x-er.
Excellent book by @jason
Big fan of Jason Calacanis since he educates the public about the startup world for free through tweets, blogs, and podcasts. Remember that the startups and investors that funded them were a big mystery before the likes of Jason and others started publishing. Best part of Jason is that he talks like the rest of us and isn't caught up in what I imagine a wildly successful investment record could do to an ego.
