GROUP DISCUSSION 
Trends in Angel & Venture Investing-Perception vs. Reality 
The key to successful returns for both the investor and the entrepreneur 

A recent TechCrunch Article says angel investors don't make money. However, a study by Robert Wiltbank, PhD , a professor at Williamette University, and backed by Kauffman Foundation, says overall angel investor returns are 2.5 times the investment.  So which is it? What makes a good investor? What are anticipated returns for angels versus venture capital and what factors are most important when making an investment decision? What deal terms are right for angels versus venture capitalist? What traits in entrepreneurs and in deals increase/decrease the odds of success?  What is the most/least effective way for companies to find the right partner/investor? And, how do companies assess and select investors to increase their own odds of success?
