The Odd Couple: Angels and Accelerators
AUGUST 9, 2012
At a recent accelerator event on the West Side, a friendly young founder told me that he had been coached by his mentor not to talk to Angel groups. As a Pasadena Angel, I wanted to be shocked, but I wasn’t. The Angel funding process can be arduous. But as a community, we have to figure out how Angels can effectively participate in the development of accelerator-based companies. To help with the capital shortage, we have to tap the Angel community.
