  8. Angels do not sign NDAs in the first meeting Main reasons for not asking a NDA to be signed by Angels - It is a bad start by telling the Angels that you do not trust them - Angels see tens or hundreds of business plans per year so signing NDA’s on all of them , would put the Angel out of the business in some weeks or months - Some entrepreneurs like litigation and if they see an opportunity... So Angels are very careful about signing anything when they do not know the entrepreneur well - In 99% of the cases, there is nothing to protect, which makes the situation a bit ridiculous and a reason for non investment 9

  10. Imagine that you have 100.000 euros in a safe bank, and you have 4% of interest rate on your deposit. Hi, My name is Zephyr, and I want you to invest in my new fantastic Start Up ! I will pay you 5% annually.

  11. But if the World Bank guarantees you that if Zephyr’s new venture doesn’t pay you the 5%, they will pay it immediately to you, would you invest ?

  12. Mutual Guarantee Venture Capital Crowdfunding Business Angels Family, Friends , Fools & State Banks 100% Goal Probability of an entrepreneur toraise money for his/her venture 0% Mitigated Risks 100% Risks (MELFO) Market, Entrepreneurs, Legal, Financial & Operational Source: Paulo Andrez

  14. 1 Risk – Market B2C products - > reward crowdfunding B2C can be transformed initially in B2B B2B - Approve samples before production line is built B2B – Get pre-orders or intentions Find key sales managers in strategic markets, with direct access to market Choose suppliers that can buy the final products

  15. 2 Risk – Entrepreneur (Team) Add cofounder(s) Hire Interim Manager A Lead angel can become temporarily CEO, while founder can become CTO or COO Assigning difficult tasks to entrepreneur before investing in order to assess his/her skills

  16. 3 Risk – Legal Subcontract a due diligence Hire an IP attorney with international experience to do the IP due diligence

  17. 4 Risk – Financial Get written quotes from main suppliers Reduce the level of investment (by splitting the investment) Rent instead of buy (buildings, vehicles, machines…) Extensively use buy back options for main equipments Use SaaS solutions (e.g. search in www.capterra.com) Subcontract initially the production before investing hugely in a production line Make agreements with main initial suppliers, transforming fixed cost in variable cost. Revenue sharing. Receiving the payments from clients to secure orders

  18. 5 • Risk – Operational • Get written statements from reliable entities confirming that the product will perform as expected • Do not reinvent the wheel. Use standard pieces and equipments in the products. Reduces the risk of non performing units • Make a prototype using smart negotiations with suppliers and eventual partners in the region

  22. Priced rounds. Traditional approach. The valuation needs to be low enough to ensure an investor can achieve an attractive return. It needs to high enough to keep existing shareholders incentivised. • Degree of influence Have a realistic valuation expectation – the investor has to make an attractive return on his investment • Valuation multiples/metrics Where there is revenue and/or profits, various multiples or metrics can be applied to establish a valuation • A multiple of recurring revenue; • A multiple of EBITDA; • A multiple of profit after tax; • A sector markup; • A value for every active user/customer… Pre-money valuation: €700k Post-money valuation: €1 million 24
