Dear Startup Investor,

Yesterday, I invited you to my live Hot Seat Session with one of the most fascinating founders I’ve ever met. If you haven’t learned all about it yet, here are all the details:

LIVE Hot Seat Session
Monday, March 15 at 8:00 p.m. EST
[Let me know you’re coming]

Today, I want to get into a small lesson. It revolves around the one thing I’m assuming you’re all here to learn: how to make money. Specifically, I want to talk about how to make money as an angel investor… without an exit.

You likely know as well as I do that angel investing is a long-term commitment.

Any investment made will take years to mature, and the luckiest angels will one day liquidate their positions during an exit event and snag a large return.

(Exit examples include events like an IPO, an acquisition, a merger, and more.)

But here’s a secret… You don’t always have to wait for an exit event to start earning money as an angel investor. In fact, if you pick the right deal, you could start seeing cash well before your portfolio company even considers an exit.

That’s one of the many reasons I’m so excited about the company I’m interviewing during Monday’s Hot Seat Session.

This company has set up their business model so that its investors can make money in a way that’s comparable to receiving dividends.

But here’s what’s so different about it… this company has not one, but TWO vehicles for investors to see a return.

I don’t want to spoil the surprise right now, so I can’t share too many details today.

But the long and short of it is that any investor in this company will share a percentage of both its management fees and its carried interest.

In other words, any time this company makes money in these ways, its investors will benefit.

Not only that, but a $100 investment in this startup can give you access to their portfolio of 160 different early-stage startup opportunities.

In my interview with the founder of this company, we’ll be deep diving into exactly how investors can make a return on this opportunity. I’m also looking forward to chatting with the founder about the company’s mission, plans to scale, market opportunity, and more.

You’ll get to be a part of the entire interview in just three days, and I can’t wait for you to join me. Of course, if you haven’t marked your calendars yet, make sure you grab the details below:
