Creating Your Own Angel Investor Group

A Guide for Emerging and Frontier Markets

infoDev's new Guide for Creating Your Own Angel Investor Group aims to educate entrepreneurs and angels from around the globe. It offers hands-on examples, such as financial worksheets, application forms, term sheets, contracts, and checklists that may be used as templates.


The publication is a substantial update of the original Kauffman Foundation’s 2004 guidebook, which targeted a U.S. audience. This international edition is written specifically for newcomers to angel investing, and highlights the successes and challenges of angel groups in emerging and frontier markets.

The reader is invited to discover the steps needed to assess one’s community, identify risks, and addresses factors that may lead to failure. Practical advice for setting up and running an angel network is illustrated from examples of new angels from around the world. More technical topics about the investment process (such as due diligence, valuation, and deal structuring) are addressed briefly, and readers are directed to materials and courses that can give more thorough guidance on these issues. We hope that Creating Your Own Angel Investor Group: A Guide for Emerging and Frontier Markets will help inspire a new global generation of business angels to develop rich, local entrepreneurial ecosystems.
