Investible to Give More Australians their Angel Investing Wings

Launches educational program on early-stage investing

 

Sydney, 6 September 2016 Investible, the leading startup generator that pairs entrepreneurial education with high quality investment capital, wants to empower more Australians to improve their investing skills and support top start-up talent. That’s why it has launched First Angel, an educational program aimed at broadening the pool and knowledge of local angel investors in early-stage investing.

 

The First Angel program will be led by Elisa-Marie Dumas, the former CEO of Springboard Enterprises, who has recently been named as Head of Partner Development & Corporate Innovation at Investible.

 

The 12-month program includes in-depth monthly sessions aimed at teaching investors Investible’s proven ‘Investibility’ methodology, which has helped cofounders Trevor Folsom and Creel Price become some of Australia’s most successful angel investors.

 

Members of First Angel agree to invest $25,000 while Investible provides the due diligence, education and scale, with access to a broad portfolio of startup opportunities from both within Australia and the US.

 

First Angel will compliment the current Club Investible program, in which members invest $100,000 into early-stage, high growth startups.

 

“Many people are interested in angel investing but are not sure where to start – they’re time poor but are eager to learn more in order feel confident they are making well-informed investment decisions. By creating more opportunities for new investors to hone their skills, we can improve the quality of the entire start-up ecosystem,” said Mr Folsom.

 

Investible hopes the First Angel program will also democratise angel investing and create a more diverse investing community in Australia.

 

“The strength of Australia’s startup ecosystem depends on how effectively we enable diverse perspectives to not only sit at the table but learn, develop and lead. We want to make investing into early-stage start-ups more accessible, lucrative and hassle free and create new opportunities for experienced entrepreneurs to give back to the ecosystem,” said Ms Dumas.
