The Era of Silicon Valley is Coming to an End as AngelTrades.co Comes of Age
Updated: Jun 12, 2019
The age of Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley getting the lions-share of deal-flow is going to make way for angel investors globally taking the torch.
For too long the folks on Sand Hill Road have charged investors 2% to 3% annually for ten years of fund “management” and 20% to 30% of any upside, to deliver lackluster results while playing king with that money. Most venture firms don’t talk about the majority of deals that lose, but the fact is that the majority of deals return nothing, some return the investment, some have a slight upside and they brag about the deals that make up their fund.
The future is crowdfunded deals where many investors way in to say what deals make sense, rather than a few people in a room who are paid to say no to most deals and yes to a very slim margin.
The days of entrepreneurs making the journey to the Mecca of California or New York will soon be completely overshadowed by tens or even hundreds of thousands of angels across the United States making smaller bets across a larger sea of deals, based on the interest and expertise of the investors.
AngelTrades.com is that shiny path forward for accredited investors. Working with a former SEC Commissioner John Gotts has invented the true purpose for exchangeable tokens, providing liquidity for investors after the one-year hold time for all Regulation D, 506c investments.
