Join us at the first in the series of Invest in Creative: Leadership in Angel Investment workshops, where angels will explore what being a lead angel entails and how to apply industry skills and experience to successfully lead a round.
This first instalment in the series of leadership in angel investment events will focus on what a lead angel is, why it is such an important position, and what steps are needed to take on this role.
This virtual event is being presented as part of the Invest in Creative toolkit event series and will help provide a baseline for the ongoing Leadership in Investment workshops. Following this workshop, investors will be welcomed to join us again to hear from a host of lead angels who will share their stories.
