Why angelsquare ?

 

 

" To maximize the chances of success of the best entrepreneurs, the rules of investing in startups must be jostled. A good investor builds long-term ties with entrepreneurs whose values he shares. He provides them his time, his experience, his network, his money, he accompanies and supports them. From these fundamental principles of good governance and integrity will emerge the greatest entrepreneurial successes of tomorrow.

AngelSquare is a game changer, facilitating the matching between the most beautiful startups and the best investors ".

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

HOW TO JOIN ANGELSQUARE ? +

Everything is done online, on the homepage of our website: click on "Join AngelSquare" or directly here.

  • Complete your investment profile
  • Choose your offer

Join AngelSquare (your request is subject to validation)

HOW DOES IT WORK ? +

The AngelSquare team selects the best startup applications it identifies from all the entries it receives each month. Once the startups are validated by our investment committee, Angelsquare presents them on the AngelSquare platform to investors whose investment criteria best match the characteristics of these startups.

AngelSquare members may co-invest with each other through our Clubs, track fundings of interest to them, share their deal-flow, give feedback and consult with other members of the community.

HOW TO INVEST IN A STARTUP? +

If you are interested in a startup presented on AngelSquare, contact the founder who then takes over. It's up to you to meet the entrepreneur, discuss with him and negotiate the terms of your investment.

You invest directly in the startup. The contractor will then provide you with the necessary legal documents and keep you informed of the closing progress.

HOW TO ACCESS OUR DEALS ? +

Once registered, your offer selected and your account validated by the AngelSquare team, you are officially part of our Business Angels community. You then access the page "Deals in progress". You can discover all startups raising funds. Click on the logo of the startup to see the deal.

HOW TO KNOW MORE ABOUT A DEAL ? +

On each Startup profile, you can click on the "Request Pitch Deck" button to directly receive the complete file. You can also directly ask us for more information about a deal in case of specific question(s)

HOW IS ANGELSQUARE PAID? +

Registration as an investor on AngelSquare is not free. The price varies depending on the category of the selected offer. The details of the offers can be found under the "Our offers" tab on site.

In exchange for actions and promotional tools set up for the benefit of the Startup, the latter is liable, according to the conditions mentioned upon the signing of a contract, a variable amount of 3,000 € HT to 5,000 € HT depending on the size of a round of funding.

In the event of the actual occurrence of an Investment, the Startup is liable in return for a fee comprised between 2.5% and 5% net of tax, calculated on the gross amount of the Investment made

HOW DO WE SELECT THE STARTUPS? +

Startups apply by submitting an application on our website. If the startup meets certain criteria (talented team, strong traction, buoyant market, reasonable terms of funding, etc.), it moves to the second stage of selection: the interview.

This interview is conducted by our team of analysts. This is to test the entrepreneur, to understand the strengths and weaknesses of his submission, and therefore his ability to convince business angels.

We select, and present to AngelSquare members, only 2% of the applications we receive.

IS ANGELSQUARE A CROWDFUNDING PLATFORM +

No, AngelSquare is not a crowdfunding platform, but a community of qualified investors. Investments are made directly or via SPV

ARE INVESTORS VERIFIED +

Yes. We rigorously screen applications from investors. That's our strength. All our investors are co-opted and / or manually validated by our team..

WHAT IS A "CLUB"? +

A Club allows members of our community to co-invest with a investor leader, expert in their sector of activity, selected by AngelSquare on strict criteria:

  • recognized sectoral expertise
  • good investment track record
  • support and monitoring of his holdings
  • significant investment tickets

As soon as the Business Angel leader invests in a new startup, he can propose it to members of his Club, who access the file on AngelSquare. The latter can co-invest with him on the same terms. The Business Angel expert accompanies entrepreneurs until a significant liquidity event (IPO, sale, etc.) that can allow each co-investor to sell their investments. AngelSquare members who want to co-invest alongside a leading Business Angel, are asking to join his Club.

Note that every request to join a Club is subject to a double validation, the first by the AngelSquare team and the second by the Club leader who authorizes you to join his Club..

HOW TO JOIN A CLUB? +

Access to Clubs is restricted to AngelSquare Members only (subject to acceptance by the Club Leader) or to Club Leaders' guests.

To join a Club on AngelSquare there are two ways:

Be directly invited by the Club leader.

If you have received an invitation directly from the leader of the Club: click on the link he sent you and let you be guided.

  • If you already have an AngelSquare account, sign in to your account.
  • If you do not have an AngelSquare account yet, sign up via the invitation link (registration will take less than 5 minutes).

Once logged in or registered, you are automatically registered at the Club where you were invited, and you will receive the next deal that the Club leader will decide to offer to his "co-investors".

Note: The invitation you received from a Club Leader does not give you access to other Clubs or other deals. To join the other Clubs and access the entire platform you must become a member of AngelSquare and choose one of the proposed offers.

Ask to join a Club from your AngelSquare accoun

On the "Clubs" page, you have access to the presentation of the different club leaders that we carefully selected according to their entrepreneur and investor track records, as well as their ability to select and support for the long term the startups in which they invest. You can discover Club leaders in video by clicking on "Discover the Club".

  • Already a member of AngelSquare?

Once logged into your AngelSquare account, go to the Club page you want to join, and click on "Ask to join the Club". The AngelSquare team is then alerted of your request. To find out more about our offers click here.

  • Not a member of AngelSquare yet?

Clubs are only accessible to AngelSquare members. Once your profile has been validated by our team, go to the Club page you want to join, and click on "Ask to join the Club". NB: Each request to join a Club is subject to a double validation, first by the AngelSquare team and second by the Club leader who authorizes you (or not) to join his Club.

CLUBS, HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? +

Club access is restricted to members of the Angelsquare community who have chosen one offer from the 5 available offers. Access to the Clubs is free for investors invited by the Club leader.

In some Clubs, a "carried-interest" is applied to the deals that allow Club members to realize a gain at the exit. Part of this carried (around 15%) goes to the leader of the Club in return for his involvement and support of the startup over time, and a part (about 5%) returns to AngelSquare. The Carried Interest is due only in the case of a gain realized by the members of his Club.

If a Club Deal is subject to a carried interest, its precise amount is announced as soon as the file of the startup is sent to the co-investors

WHAT ARE THE COMMITMENTS OF THE CLUB LEADERS? +

The commitments of Club leaders

The founding principle of the Clubs is to align the interests of Club members and animators with those of the entrepreneurs, in order to maximize the chances of success of the companies supported by the Clubs. For this, the Club Animator is committed to:

  • Regularly offer investment opportunities to Club members
  • Negotiating the investment conditions for all members of his club and making them invest on the same conditions as himself, so as to promote a healthy and sustainable governance of the company and cohesion with all partners.
  • To avoid any form of conflict of interest between Club members. For this purpose, it reserves the right to refuse or exclude a member of the Club at any time.
  • Accompany entrepreneurs in the long term, until a significant liquidity event that will benefit all co-investors

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM INVESTMENT TICKET? +

It varies depending on the startups. Our startups rarely accept tickets under 10k € / investor. For information, the average ticket of AngelSquare members is around 50k € / startup.

HOW TO INTRODUCE A STARTUP TO THE ANGELSQUARE COMMUNITY? +

Are you investing in a startup and want to speed up its release? You can propose us the startup. We prioritize startups in which AngelSquare members invest. For this, send us an email to deal@angelsquare.co or file the submission online.
