TEC MEETING - ANGEL INVESTING FOR SERIOUS INVESTORS. JANUARY 9, 2014

Start your New Year with TEC Club event and join us on Thursday, January 9th, for a discussion with Carol Sands, Founder and Managing Partner, The Angels’ Forum and The Halo Funds. Carol teaches a course on Angel Investments at Stanford University. Carol kindly agreed to deliver a short overview version of the course at TEC.

Making an investment in an early-stage startup is fun and easy to do, but making a profit from angel investment is not a trivial task. Carol teaches how to increase the probability of success by modifying the initial selection process, productively monitoring the investment’s progress, and monetizing investment at the right point.

Carol Sands started her career working for large companies but switched to owning and running startups in the 1980s. She founded The Angels’ Forum, a group of professional private equity investors, in 1997. The Halo Funds, a Silicon Valley-based venture capital fund, raised its first fund in 2000 and is currently investing from Halo III. Carol also works with both commercial and nonprofit boards.

What They Say About Us

"The wonderful thing about entrepreneurs is that their passion for starting new companies transcends languages and geographic boundaries."

Ron Conway, Founder and Managing Partner of the Angel Investors LP funds, early stage investor in Google and PayPal

"Networking is very important for start-ups. The challenge for them is often not money: it is mentoring and finding people who can give good advice from experience."

Esther Dyson, Founder, EDventure Holdings

"This conference is clearly a labor of love for a group of dedicated professionals who care deeply about the Eastern European entrepreneurs. From the value-packed educational panels, to the star-studded key note speakers' line up, to an amazing quantity of venture capitalists – this is a not to be missed event for any high tech entrepreneur,"

Richard Guha, President of the Marketing Executives Network and Managing Partner at MaxBrandEquity

"As Stanford MBA students, we were exposed to a lot of VC firms both from the Valley and abroad. It is at Stanford that we met Anna Dvornikova, an absolutely amazing business leader and (by our big luck) our friend, who was the center of the Russian Silicon Valley professional community, and was doing a huge work to connect Russia and the Valley. Anna helped us a lot with kick-starting Wikimart, put us to our first-ever conference, introduced us to most of Russian VCs. And all that happened in a very short time span! It was the beginning of a six-month journey that despite the particularly tough times resulted in an extraordinarily group of investors backing our start-up."

Maxim Faldin and Kamil Kurmakayev,
co-CEOs, Wikimart
