What are Founding Angels
- Founding Angels help bridge the gap which exists between research and commercialization of the new technologies.
- Together with inventors, they found startup companies to further develop the research and commercialize the results.
- The Founding Angels business model is similar to that of Business Angels, but the operational and financial support of Founding Angels begins before the actual founding of the startup, as a member of the founding/management team, continues in the founding and building up the ne startup company.
Founding Angels have an extensive know how and understanding in:
- Company business management
- The scientific background
- Financial issues
- Leadership competence and the ability to form an excellent management team
- The building up of highly effective and efficient operational structure
