How to become an angel investor?

Amazon / EngTwerkie
Mar 4

I'd like to invest in very early stage startups in the form of seed money.

I have about $60k to invest and am NOT a high net worth person. What are my options?

    60k is not enough to become an angel investor. Stock market.

    Def enough. I have invested 4x $5k in some promising companies (Some are YC) I just proved what I could add as a value to the founders (product and growth) and convinced the entrepreneurs to let me invest.

    Connect with me in DMs, can bring some good deals for you :)

      You have to attest to being accredited so the companies know you're accredited.

      If you're not, the companies can have issues as they raise later.

    • No you don't. You can register as an HNI

      Oh they've loosened it? That's great. Is that where you can do $5k/year?

    • You would typically be invited to invest with a syndicate. Minimum investment is around that only

  • You are not an accredited investor.

    I believe you need 1M liquid assets (not your house) to get accreditation. You can also get lucky and invest as friends/family if a new startup is willing to grant you non-voting shares. It's very risky. Only do it if the founder(s) have a strong track record (and even that's risky).

    You legally cannot. See accreditation
