Want to be a successful investor?



Learn to be a successful angel investor with our Angel Accelerator Bootcamp
Thursday, October 11th at CU South Denver from 9am - 4pm

Angel investing requires specialized knowledge that is not obvious even to those with MBAs or who may have been CEO of their own company for years. We teach the ins and outs of venture capital to help angels be successful and confident in their decisions.

The Angel Accelerator Bootcamp accelerates an angel investor’s learning with a combination of hands-on exercises, working with experienced angel investor mentors, and solid content, plus toolkits that you’ll need for successful angel investing.


About the Speaker

Your facilitator, Peter Adams, has many years of experience as an angel investor, Venture Capital Fund Manager, MBA instructor, and non-profit leader. Peter is co-author of Venture Capital for Dummies and has written and spoken extensively about venture and angel investing. "Our biggest startup problem in Colorado, says Peter Adams, is capital. “We have a huge supply of startups and not enough capital in the state. We have 20,000 accredited investors here and fewer than 1,000 of them are investing in this state.”


How does someone learn how to be a successful angel investor?

Answer: Participate in the Angel Accelerator Bootcamp and learn how to be a SMART angel investor and receive a great return on investment, avoid taxation, learn about leading edge innovation and meet interesting people! 

Angel investing is not as risky as many people think. With a combination of high returns, tax free profits and smart diligence and diversification strategies, angels receive post tax returns averaging at mid-20% internal rates of return.

Angel investors make great profits, but even more important is the ability to support your local community rather than sending your capital off to money managers on the coasts. Angel investors give back to their communities through capital investment, coaching and mentoring and engagement in the community. Angel investors that don’t have the time can engage through venture funds with local impact as well.

Participants in the Angel Accelerator Bootcamp learn the language, logic and process of venture capital investing, opening up opportunities for returns that are significantly higher than can be found in the markets – AND with great tax advantages.  Participants will be ready to engage with angel groups to analyze deals and negotiate favorable terms.
