Angel Investors, Entrepreneurs to Earn their Wings at Angel Resource Institute’s Educational Workshops

WILMINGTON, NC – The Angel Resource Institute (ARI) is hosting two educational workshops for angel investors and entrepreneurs in Greensboro, N.C., July 10 and 12. ARI, a global nonprofit dedicated to education and research in the early-stage space, will present Valuation of Early-Stage Companies and Funding High-Growth Ventures. Greensboro resident and ARI lead instructor Troy Knauss will lead the four-hour courses, sharing his personal experiences as both an exited-entrepreneur and investor. Early bird registration is now open; early bird registrants receive an exclusive rate and a signed copy of Knauss’s book, Get In Get Out: 100 Rules for Successful Start-Up Deals. Seating is limited.

“I know first-hand how risky and competitive the market is for startups,” Knauss said. “ARI empowers entrepreneurs with the tools, insight, and realistic expectations to get the capital they need to fund their ideas.”

ARI’s workshops are designed to get entrepreneurs and investors on the same page, both before and after a deal. These programs walk attendees through proven best practices in angel investing. Valuation of Early-Stage Companies is a critical course for the life of any early-stage deal. Knauss will review the fundamental approaches to properly valuing an early-stage company while comparing start-ups in North Carolina and the southeast to national data provided by ARI’s Halo Report. Funding High-Growth Ventures details components of the deal that are valuable to both investors and start-ups. The course includes a how-to guide and detailed explanations of building, growing and exiting businesses.
