I continually found that investors were exploring a personal interest and an investment return when they approached angel investing. This is a little different than a pure financial investor as a pure financial investor isn’t necessarily interested in being a part of changing the world through their investments. An angel investor, by nature of the outsized return their after is investing to change the world as well as earn a return. I wondered how best to help new investors direct their passion in a way that also provided a return and found there wasn’t a good set of angel investing models, so I went about interviewing as many of the best angel investors I could find to see what I’d learn and write a book on my findings.(less)

“I like innovation. I like ideas. I like people and I like being part of winning teams. I don't gamble, I don't watch sports, I don't do any of those things. What I like to do is bet on people in the innovation business, so as soon as I had the capacity, that’s what I started doing as an individual—writing some small checks, and then some bigger checks.”
