This document is designed to make firms avoid investment mistakes- specially for firms in New York where the technology-investing culture is taking off.

As many of you may know, my current fund 8VC Partners, focuses on early growth investing. Nevertheless, when growth companies do not exist when desired, we invest in early stage companies. These seed and series A rounds develop optionality to gain access to a number of the best early-growth deals.

But angel investing/early growth investing presents many challenges. If a firm is in its early stage, one can measure the existence of a strong technology culture before success is priced in- the business very easily fits the ecosystem, it engages customers and builds pathways for distribution. This is what many investors look after, and it is actually a full time job to find access to them, invest in them on good terms and give them the advantages to make sure they win in their respective markets.

One has to keep in mind many challenges are faced by early stage companies but fortunately, the factors driving these challenges are not dispositive for angel investing.

Hence this 3 page guide should guide you through your next investment decision making-process.

If you have any questions, do feel free to ask me. And if you need feedback, no worries, I won’t steal your deal.

Keep in mind that in this investment area, if done with discipline and with the right deal flow, one can bring great returns!
