Welcome to Angel School

Hands-on training for emerging Angels in venture investing tradecraft

 

Angel School empowers investors to fund their own investment thesis &  dealflow

Angel School is a Fellowship program giving emerging Angels hands-on experience in venture tradecraft. You'll gain real-world experience through Angel School syndicates: from deal sourcing, diligence, investor relations all the way to deal execution.

Our mission is simple: We want to empower Angel School Fellows to fund their own thesis & dealflow. 


We think we can get you there in 12-18 months. You'll even earn carried interested along the way.

Backed by 400+ active investors

Our investors have deployed $2MN+ in our first 8 months at 20% carry. 

Our network of investors is growing all the time.

Day 1 carried interest

Angel School Fellows earn carried interest on every syndicate. We award up to 20% of carry based on performance.

Angel School Fellows also get preferential terms on dealflow.

Proven playbook

Our model is 'battle tested'. It's closed $800k capital allocations.

We'll give you all the tools for syndication: from investor messaging, to deal activations, and closing commitments.

  • Stay committed: Expect to commit 2 hrs/wk as part of our investment committee. You'll need to put in additional work on your own.

Angel investor since 2016 (1 exit, 1x centaur). Advisor @ Turing.com, Alectio.


I started Angel School because:

  1. Breaking into venture is HARD: Opportunity is limited and the risk of going it alone is high. I think Angel School is a better model.

  2. It takes a long time: It takes years of hands-on practice to acquire the skills. I want to accelerate your path.

  3. My playbook works: Syndicates give Angels leverage on capital, time and effort. Angel School syndicates have deployed $3.5MN in 14 months.
