How Seed VC’s are Magnifying Angel Investment
In recent years we have seen a sharp rise in Seed VC funds who are looking to empower founders at the very beginning of their entrepreneurial journey. With the professionalised approach of an institution combined with the speed and hands on support of an angel investor, they are quickly gaining a reputation akin to a top super angel.
Join us on Tuesday 14th July at 11am as we hear from leading Seed VCs, founded and backed by exited entrepreneurs, about how they’re using their previous experience to back early-stage founders. Fred Sonaya, Haatch Ventures, Reece Chowdry, RLC Ventures and Mads Jenson, SuperSeed will give us an insight into how the Seed VC model of investing works, how they differ from angels and traditional VC’s and where they add the most value to the funding journey.
