Ten years ago I started my first business without any business experience- and just a few years of tech experience. Along the way I’ve learnt everything through mentors, research, wins and failures. I actually would not recommend starting a business. You are better off working your way to a high paying job and investing in index funds. But if you are like me- you wouldn’t take that advice as it’s not about money or anything tangible. It’s probably a personally gene (or flaw) that makes one driven to start a business.
I’m at a point in my career where I want to help others grow. I’m looking to invest in early stage tech companies at a pre-launch or pre-customer stage. This is where I can provide the most value- as getting started is where I have the most experience. And this is all very recent experience for me. You will find that a lot of angel investors are baby boomers that don’t understand your technology and their connections are no longer relevant. I’m still on my journey- just a few steps ahead of you and I think this is my biggest advantage as your potential investor. For this reason I have a preference for anything related to my space: PropTech, IoT and software for enterprise customers. But anything that is B2B is my general focus.
