Venture capital feels like an "insider" world to many.
To be an angel investor, you need to invest at least $25k, if not $50k, in each opportunity. A diversified portfolio requires at least 20 investments.
Even if you had $500,000 to $1 million, you still wouldn't be tied into networks of top investors and deal flow.
VC isn't the world's most diverse network either, but how do you get started without opportunities to build your network and learn?
Crowd investing sites solve some of these issues, allowing you to invest in smaller sizes. They still don't educate or connect you with professionals.
Fund investments give you diversification, but getting a quarterly report on what someone else did with your money isn't very educational.
#newtovc is aiming to create a much more engaging educational opportunity about startups and venture.
We are hosting free monthly classes and workshops for those who have an interest in working with growing companies, but who might lack experience, dealflow or guidance on how to navigate the venture landscape.
