The seventh episode of the Angel Investing Master Class is here! In this class, Adam Sharp explains why it’s important for startup investors to prioritize traction and founding teams over trendy sectors.
When Adam first started investing, he imagined he’d invest in exciting sectors like artificial intelligence, cannabis and drones… but in reality, some of his best investments have been in admittedly boring industries. That’s because you just can’t judge a startup by its sector. A startup’s traction and founders are far more important than the industry it operates in.
