For Investors

Are you an investor?

Our angel investors are wealthy individuals who are looking to invest in exciting businesses. They will normally invest in return for a share of equity in the business. Beyond the investment, they often have skills, knowledge and networks that can add value to your businesses. Some of our investors become active members of the startup they invest in and contribute to its day-to-day operation.

Many of our investors believe in the potential of the Vietnamese market and are interested in getting to know a portfolio of Vietnamese startups that are disrupting this developing market. 

They understand that Vietnamese techies who enjoy the mentoring and support of technology experts from Israel and Canada who are well experienced can increase their chances to build great companies who can expand to North America, the most advanced technological market in the world.

What do Angels Investors expectfrom start-ups?

  1. Potential returns.Given the high-risk nature of early-stage equity, Angel Investors are first and foremost looking for an opportunity to make a good return. How good is a return? Certainly, better than they could get in the stock markets, and typically somewhere in this e region of 10 times over a 5–10-year investment.
  2. Growth potential/scalability.  Delivering a good return to investors is only possible if you have a business that has serious potential to grow, and can be scaled to fulfil that potential. Does your business clearly solve a problem, and can you demonstrate that you have some early traction?
  3. A strong team. A great idea alone will not get you far; you need to have a team who are going to be able to execute that idea and turn it into a reality. Having a team that can demonstrate experience and success in a similar field, adds significant credibility to everything else investors hear from you.
  4. A solid business plan. Investors will not only want to see ambitious yet realistic financial projections and targets, but also see that you really understand your market and customer, and can execute a go-to-market strategy to drive growth and hit your targets.
  5. An exit strategy. Investors will want to see how they can realize their investment gains within 5-10 years, and therefore what your strategy is for an exit, and within what timeframe, whether that be an IPO, sale or something else.
  6. A reason beyond the commercials.  If all the above ticks the boxes, you still want to ensure that your pitch can get investors excited for reasons beyond pure financial gain. Whilst some investors will only be interested in the economics of the deal, others will want to see a way that they can help make a difference in the world with their investment.  
  7. An opportunity to add value beyond capital. A lot of angel investors will want to have active involvement in the businesses they invest in, therefore it’s really important for them to see where they can add value beyond just their capital, whether that’s through mentoring, leadership or network.
