Barry and Mike were entertaining and to the point

I now know what paths I want to follow in my new venture

It was great to hear from so many angles

It was good to better understand the decision Angel Investor's take to invest in companies. Also to see what they are looking for in a company and in the companies management team

Very revealing insight into how Business Angels operate and the key sectors they like to invest in

Mike's a very knowledgeable Angel investor and businessman with lots of great advice gained from years of investing in both successful and unsuccessful ventures. But we got much more than just Mike's views as we had three other Arch Angel founders there too!

Most of the attendees had no idea what angel investors did, or how they did it. Some had very narrow agendas some, like me, were along for the experience. I think everyone got something from it

My key tip - how to chose a BA or VC

Key tip - the process is actually very simple. Standard shareholdings. The Angel works with your business. Once the deal is done they are on the same side of the table

Key tip for me was that Angel Investors do not like family companies. Archangels only look to take the same shares as the founders

Understanding the key criteria to the investors. The sectors they like to invest in and the need to be well prepared re business plans etc before meeting Angels. Also understanding how few of the projects that come across their desk that they actually invest in, so offering has to be exceptional

I thought Barry handled the evening very well and he made sure that everyone was able to ask detailed questions and kept the topics moving very nicely. It was very interesting to hear Barry's thoughts and experience on investing

Barry kept the meeting flowing well and made sure everyone got involved

Mike gave a very informative and candid talk and explained how Angels work and how Archangels work in a very straightword way

Mike listened to what each of the people wanted to get out of the Supper Club and brought this to life using his vast experience and a portfolio of investments

Mike was excellent and informative and quoted many good examples of the areas they work in

Mike was brilliant!

I though it was great of Mike to send out a power point of what to expect before the event it helped to make the evening run smoothly

All round an excellent event
