Angelsbootcamp Program

2 days of interactive investing sessions run by seasoned veterans and industry insiders. A two-day master class bringing together potential and experienced angels* with tons of hands-on, real-life content ranging from term sheets to deal flow to managing syndications. Angelsbootcamp is a no-nonsense, hands-on way to sharpen your angel investing skills. Just pure and focused angel sessions.

  • On Day 1 – After a long day of war stories, best practices and term sheet battles, we head off to drink wine, break bread and let our hair down. In the past, we’ve dined at such fine establishments as FILETSTÜCK Prenzlauer Berg and Le Pont de la Tour London.  We promise you won’t be disappointed.
  • On Day 2 – we join the Investor’s Dinner Europe. At this highly exclusive event European angel investors and venture capital firms meet with innovative and promising SEED/EARLY-stage start-ups from the ICT sector. At an exclusive dinner location, start-ups will be seated together with carefully selected investors and will have the opportunity to pitch their idea and business plan. This is a unique opportunity to have meaningful conversations with up to 30 European investors (angel investors from Angelsbootcamp and international VCs such as Earlybird, Index, Balderton and Wellington). Each start-up will have the opportunity to talk to the investor guests during the course of the dinner.
