The Full Ratchet Podcast on iTunesNick Moran Angel List

Maia Heymann of Converge Venture Partners joins Nick to cover ‘From Angel Group to Venture Fund, Part 1’. We will address questions including:

  • Maia Heymann from Angel Group to Venture FundCan you walk us through your background and how you became involved in startup investing?
  • From your experience as an institutional LP, how did you choose venture fund managers to invest in?
  • Today’s topic is from Angel Group to Venture Fund. Can you start us off by talking about your nine-year experience with Common Angels?
  • Do you have a sense for how many deals were completed during your tenure at Common Angels?
  • We’ve heard about Angel anchor funds within angel groups before. There are many examples and we have had Dave Berkus talk about the fund that he manages for Tech Coast Angels as well as John Huston discussed the Ohio Tech Angels Fund.  Can you first talk about how these funds work in conjunction with the traditional angel group model?
  • Why do some angel groups do this instead of just the standard model?
  • With Converge, will you be employing a similar model where members from Common Angels can bolt onto your deals or will it be completely separate?
