[MaGIC Webinar] The Angel Series: Industry Focused Investing

In partnership with the Malaysian Business Angel Network (MBAN), this webinar is an introduction to the Angel Series, specially curated to bridge the gaps between an investor’s requirements and a Startup’s expectation to enable more early-stage investments. The Angel Series will cover multiple topics in different areas of angel investments such as business model pivots, corporate angel investors, impact investments, negotiating term sheets and more. To accelerate the development of investor and startup understanding of these topics, this series will also focus on highlighting and discussing real and relevant examples of angel investments.

With the current government initiatives in place to drive investment into science and technology innovation, this session will be looking into what to expect in terms of investment trends and will industry-based investing become the new norm.
