Our live course runs every April and September. It is designed to take you from knowing nothing about angel investing to shaking off your limiting beliefs to feeling confident, empowered and knowledgeable enough to make your first investment alone or with others.


Before diving into the theory and practise of angel investing, we provide a course overview and opportunity for you to get to know your peers.

Develop your personal investment style. Learn how to narrow down your focus on deals you are looking for by factors such as geography, sector and how much you are willing to invest.

A two-step methodology to quickly decide whether or not to register interest and speak to founders about potentially investing in their startup.

Understanding the common legal documents and important key terms to know when investing in startups.

Founders often refer other founders when you are helpful and add value beyond the capital you invest. Being proactive in shaping your personal brand attracts great startups who are fundraising to connect with you


With AIS, you get to learn live, from leading experts in the Angel Investing world, spanning from leaders of Angel Syndicates to General Partners at VCs and startup founders. We have a roster of world-class speakers covering topics ranging from creating an investment thesis through to structuring deals and creating a brand.
