If you are a long term reader or have been with ‘Ecosystem’ from the very beginning, you likely know how it started and the inspiration behind it. There is a common saying that while talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not - and the goal of the ‘Ecosystem’ project is to address this exact problem of access to opportunity in early stage fundraising. Hopefully through the information shared in the weekly newsletter and the knowledge exchange and connections made via the online initiatives; we will collectively succeed in tackling the issue of closed networks in venture - and more opportunities for entrepreneurs raising the first round of external funding and for junior investors starting out in VC will be created.


On the topic of raising the first round of capital, as a founder, how do you find the earliest backers for your startup? The angel investors, willing to take a bet on you, in many cases long before an institutional investor does. And if you can be that person and move the needle by supporting an entrepreneur take a venture off the ground, how do you start angel investing? How can you identify the future billion-dollar companies?


The next #EcosystemGiants session will be an opportunity to gain insight into the way angel/venture investing works - and the difference between the two. Hear from an amazing investor, with experience backing super successful late stage businesses (Stocard), as well as identifying unicorn startups at inception (Tier Mobility*).
