Wharton Alumni AngeLs of Silicon VALLEY
Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Investing in a diversified angel portfolio may be both a higher return and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a lower risk proposal than tranditional publicly available bonds and equity investments. In this introduction to angel investing David Mes (WG'05) and Ben Orthlieb (WG'07) discuss generating returns as an angel investor, the issue of access to the asset class, return metrics, and risk profiles. The workshop will dive deep into how to do it well through diversification, deal sharing, joining angel networks, using investment platforms, and participating in angel funds. You'll also learn how to track and actively manage your portfolio. Mike torosian, partner in Pilsbury's San Francisco office, will lead an additional discussion and Q&A session about the legal aspects of angel investing.
