Angel investing is a powerful way to grow your wealth in 2019 and beyond. Successful angels receive post-tax returns averaging 20% and higher. But angel investing requires specialized knowledge that is not obvious even to those with MBAs or who may have been CEOs.

This exclusive, one-day program is led by Peter Adams, one of the top US venture capitalists who will “demystify” the ins and outs of venture capital.

The Angel Accelerator Bootcamp accelerates an angel investor’s learning with a combination of hands-on exercises in valuation, due diligence, analyzing exits and exit options.

Participants also receive an entire year of full membership in Rockies Venture Club, the oldest and one of the most active angel investment groups in the U.S. with free access to angel forums by LiveStream and in person as well as monthly pitch events and discounts on conferences! ($695 value!) 

Attend the Bootcamp AND receive a year’s FULL Membership to the Rockies Venture Club for just $395 (regular price $1990)

 

your facilitator

Peter Adams, Managing Partner of Rockies Venture Fund, has over 30 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?

Participate in the Angel Accelerator Bootcamp and also receive a Full Annual Membership in Rockies Venture Club.

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.
