Founder peer investing

What if we helped educate founders and build the next generation of angel investors by investing small amounts into each others companies?

I pitched Ian Vanagas, author of Smart Young BC, on this concept, and mentioned it to the Novus organizers.

I’m going to figure out a date for running an initial session in Vancouver, that will probably look something like this:

  • get a law firm sponsor to host in a boardroom
  • do some light educational material about funding and company formation for first time founders
  • have some pitch presentations and feedback

Maybe we’ll only do the first two bullets and do a second session just for pitches.

Perhaps a reboot / re-use of Venture Scouts.
