AT THE EVENT
C2 Capital is hosting an Angels cocktail night to bring 40 hand picked individuals together to help create a community of people who can share in our vision with us.
We are seeking out people who just like Andy Bechtolsheim (both aspiring and professional Angel Investors) want to support our local entrepreneurs to build world class businesses here in Australia.
Our guiding metrics is to build a community overtime of 200 active Angels with an average of $100,000 to invest in a startup portfolio which collectively as a co-investment group will provide an investment pool of $20,000,000 making it we believe the largest of its kind in Australia.
LETS CREATE A WORLD CLASS STARTUP ECOSYSTEM
At C2 Capital we are committed to creating a community of like minded Angel Investors who want to build a world class startup ecosystem, firstly in Melbourne and Sydney, then in other parts of Australia.
With that in mind we are developing a framework that can bring this community together, whether an aspiring Angel Investor or an experienced sophisticated investor with many successes behind them. This together with access to thought leaders, subject matter experts and content providers can optimise the potential of both our Angel Investor community and or our Portfolio Entrepreneurs.
THE GUIDING OUTCOMES OF C2 ANGELS
- Develop and empower Angels to their full potential whether they are just starting out through to a sophisticated investor
- Provide a pipeline of high value startups to co-invest with other Angels
- Provide the best resources for investment success
- Match Angels to work with startups
- Finally, help Angels build a portfolio of investments for greater wealth creation
ANGELS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR BUILDING THE FUTURE
If you look at all great technology companies that exist today, you will find the majority had Angel Investors who provided funding, wisdom and connections for success. These investors were prepared to take a risk and support these entrepreneurs when others wouldn’t and are now reaping the benefits for their foresight.
The success of world class startup ecosystems like Silicon Valley is largely attributed to initial seed funding provided by Angel Investors. In the past Angel Investment was an “ad hoc” activity. Today it is recognised as a respected part of the global alternative asset investment market and an essential part of any sophisticated investor portfolio.
