The 25 Step Angel Investor Checklist - Matt Ward
Angel investing in tech startups can be a massive source of wealth creation. It's sexy too, who doesn't want to say…
If you happen to need any of those or the other business critical tools on our Offers & Resources page, we’d really appreciate if you’d support us by supporting our partners.
And yes, it is a bit embarrassing asking for help and support to keep The Startup Tank going, but as most of you know, unlike a VC fund, 4WARD.VC’s Climate Syndicate has no management fees and we NEVER would charge companies to pitch.
So help us keep doing what we’re doing in any way you can — be that leaving a review on Spotify or Apple Podcast, subscribing on Youtube, sharing with a friend or using our partner links whenever you need a new domain, social media marketing tool or site upgrade :)
Have a great day and keep up the good fight!
