The workshop includes a combination of plenary sessions and two tracks for different audiences of angels.  Keynotes and plenaries will highlight Houston’s innovation system, focus on how angels have come together throughout Texas (and what you can take back to your location), and the ever popular “unconference” where the audience decides the issues we discuss.

Seasoned Angels Track

  • Learning from our failures – based on real data
  • M&A experts provide tips for angels on prepping companies for exit
  • Advanced due diligence techniques, including evaluating intellectual property
  • To follow-on or not – your decision template
  • Structuring investments for the best outcomes (tax and returns)

Group and Platform Leader Track

  • Building relationships with family offices and VCs for follow-on funding and exits
  • Revamping your funding process – how one group enhanced its deal flow and more
  • How leaders navigate different vehicles of funding – some may be better for angels, but not for you
  • The latest in structuring sidecar funds – based on research
  • Effective ways to support portfolio companies, on a tight budget
