    Interesting thread. Have there been good returns on recent projects at Angel? I just read something about most startups folding within 48 months or something like that.

    It is risky investment as you are investing in businesses in early stage.

    It really depends on how cautious you are. Some guys in there just throw money to lots of startups and hope one will get them a nice 5000% return. Some other pick them very well and get involved in it (which is the best way I think).

    And there are those who make the wrong choices.

    I think it's a very risky business and you need to have a lot to invest- might lose your cash 4 times then make 500% plus the fifth time...

    also so I think you need to get in somewhere that you really know the business well in order that you can perform in depth due diligence.

    I think there are some good tech startup collaboratives around that would be a good place to start (assuming that's your niche).

    Thanks for the heads up. It may seem that people just jump in and give money to someone already successful without much research.
