Summary
  • "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!"--
  • "Over the past 25 years Jason Calacanis has been building and investing in technology startups. In that time, he's made tens of millions of dollars by getting lucky-seven times. Angel takes you step-by-step through how massive, some say unfair, wealth is being created in the 21st century: i.e. by startups. In Angel he teaches readers how to get rich even if you came from humble beginnings like him (dad's a bartender, mom's a nurse), didn't go to the right schools, and were a career C-grade student. For budding entrepreneurs, the book will take them inside the mind of angel investors, helping them understand their priorities and decision-making process. Calacanis walks readers through the calculus and decision points great angel investors explore as they evaluate new ventures; he reveals how leading investors think and how the best startups leverage relationships with angel investors for the best results. Whether you're an aspiring investor or a budding entrepreneur, this book will inspire and educate you on all the ins of outs. There are two ways to make money in this world: create something valuable or invest in the people that are creating valuable things. Buckle up for a wild ride into the world of angel investing"--
