Why and How to Pursue Angel Investing

Penn Wharton Entrepreneurs Workshop presents Why and How to Pursue Angel Investing. Join us for an introduction to angel investing including a Q&A session on the legal aspects.

Penn Wharton Entrepreneurs workshop
Friday, April 7, 2017

Investing in a diversified angel portfolio may be both a higher return, and somewhat counter-inuitively, a lower risk proposal than traditional publicly available bonds and equity investments. 

In this Penn Wharton Entrepreneurs Workshop David Mes, WG'05 and Ben Orthlieb, WG'07 will 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 angel invest 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 a portfolio.
