MidloAngels Investor's Involvement

  • Invest in your comfort level according to your plan.

  • Utilize the combined knowledge and experience of the network to help you make more informed decisions.

Successful early-stage investing is challenging and becomes increasingly difficult the earlier the investment is made in the startup’s lifecycle. The typical angel network model of direct investments in startups is only sustainable if there is strong leadership from investors with a track record of achieving attractive returns, and even then, successful participation is limited by the ability to execute on a diversified startup investing plan.

It’s kind of like betting on the new unknown horse and jockey with the low odds of winning. The potential for amazing returns are what draw investors in, successfully executing on a well thought out investment plan is what allows you to keep playing. 

This is why a strategy for building a diversified startup investment portfolio is key and utilizing ways to invest that offer the flexibility to support your plan are crucial as you gain experience as a startup investor.

Midlothian Angel Network is not a party or beneficiary of any investment transactions. MIDLOTHIAN ANGEL NETWORK facilitates an array of investment participation options ranging from direct investments to leading or following in MIDLOTHIAN ANGEL NETWORK member led syndications through special purpose vehicles (SPVs). 

SPVs also allow for greater investment diversification opportunities through lower investment minimums and a meritocratic investment structure based on participation level in sourcing through closing of the deal.

Our members bring a wide variety of skills, knowledge, and expertise to the process.
