  • On the eve of the graduation of the TechStars Boston 2010 class, I thought I’d weigh in with some additional advice to anyone who either is or wants to be an angel investor. Some of this repeats what Will and Don said, but I’ll try to be additive (and specific). For context, I’ve made over 75 direct angel investments primarily in two time periods – 1994-1996 and 2006-2007. I’m out of the angel business as all of my investments go through Foundry Group (the VC fund I’m a partner in) but I’m an investor in a number of “super angel funds” as well as a co-founder of TechStars and I continue to regularly make seed investments from Foundry Group alongside of angel investors.
