What are the key elements that make a successful raise with an Angel Club?
Leadership. It takes work from the founders to really make the case for what they need and why. It also takes leadership from the investor side. Find a champion and have them help you set the pace and set the terms.
Am I going to have lots of new investors on my cap table?
Our club invests through a nominee company so the underlying investors are not individually added to your capitalisation table.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Everything is success based. We charge a commission on funds raised from the club and the investee also pays for capped legal fees on the deal. Commissions are 6% on a first round and 3% on follow on (excl. GST).
