Angel investing is a pretty admirable business, IMHO.  There are so many companies that wouldn’t have been without them.

Here are 7 pieces of advice for Angels looking to have more success from one of the top VC bloggers, Brad Feld from Foundry Group. Read the full blog here.

  1. Be promiscuous
  2. Have a long term financial strategy
  3. Understand the difference between 0x and 100x
  4. Choose people over ideas
  5. Decide quickly
  6. Don’t torture entrepreneurs
  7. Run in a pack
