About this audiobook

One of Silicon Valley's most successful angel investors shares his rules for investing in startups.

There are two ways to make money in startups: create something valuable—or invest in the people that are creating valuable things.

Over the past twenty-five years, Jason Calacanis has made a fortune investing in creators, spotting and helping build and fund a number of successful technology startups—investments that have earned him tens of millions of dollars. Now, in this enlightening guide that is sure to become the bible for twenty-first century investors, Calacanis takes potential angels step-by-step through his proven method of creating massive wealth: startups.

As Calacanis makes clear, you can get rich—even if you came from humble beginnings (his dad was a bartender, his mom a nurse), didn't go to the right schools, and weren't a top student. The trick is learning how angel investors think. Calacanis takes you inside the minds of these successful moneymen, helping you understand how they prioritize and make the decisions that have resulted in phenomenal profits. He guides you step by step through the process, revealing how leading investors evaluate new ventures, calculating the risks and rewards, and explains how the best startups leverage relationships with angel investors for the best results.

Whether you're an aspiring investor or a budding entrepreneur, Angel will inspire and educate you on all the ins of outs. Buckle up for a wild ride into the world of angel investing!

    Amazing book, I am 22 years old and heard about him through a Coffeezilla podcast, I had to check out the book and although Im not at a level to be an angel investor the wealth of knowledge from this book was amazing. I currently work as a delivery driver for amazon and will escape being the cog in the machine. Thanks Jason -Christian

    I've read many books on investing and approaches to angel investing. This is the best one out there that provides honest, step by step guidance to help anyone new (or even more experienced investors) make smart decisions and a plan to slowly scale up and learn how to do angel investing smarter and better. I also have taken Jason's 3 hour class on Angel Investing and listen regularly to his podcast and I highly recommend them as terrific resources
