Quick Facts: How Successful Angels Invest
Savvy investors know they aren’t psychics and aren’t living in an ideal world. They know that many startups will fail so they use a portfolio approach to balance their risks. They invest in a number of companies rather than just one and only scope for those that have a potential payoff of at least 5 to as much as 30x their invested capital in 3 to 5 years. This way, the startups that succeed would generate a return handsome enough to not only recoup their losses but also fatten up their bank accounts.
