FEEDING YOUR STARTUP | The Importance of Choosing the Right Angel Investors and Investment Strategy | The Impact Angel Group

FEEDING YOUR STARTUP | The Importance of Choosing the Right Angel Investors and Investment Strategy | The Impact Angel Group | Angel Investor | Scoop.it

At the last two of our Summer Learning Series events, some angel investors shared their own perspectives and experiences. Surprisingly enough, the advice seemed to circle back to the concept that the process for choosing investors (and co-investors) needs to be given as much attention and priority as the process of vetting potential startup investments.

As one presenter, Dr. Floyd Taub – physician, entrepreneur and angel investor – wisely analogized – having a startup is like having a baby.  Exactly what and how much you feed it (as well as who might be feeding it) is very important.  As Dr. Taub said:

 

“Entrepreneurs need to be re-educated from the frequent initial thought that they are ‘selling their baby’ to understand that they are selling paper in order to ‘feed their baby’. Not only do babies frequently starve, but those who are underfed, may be stunted or at least have a significant and costly growth delay.”

I’m a real fan of analogies, so this really resonated with me. I thought I’d embrace my analogyitis and take this a step further with a few examples that can apply to both babies and startups…
