The Angel Investor’s Handbook, a joint initiative of YourStory & LetsVenture, launched at TechSparks 2021

Rajan Anandan, Anupam Mittal, Sanjay Mehta, Ratan Tata, Kunal Shah and Sachin Bansal. Many consider them to be the best angel investors in India, which is undeniably true. However, let’s not forget that everyone started out small, experimented, made mistakes, and continued the cycle until they were finally successful.

It’s a common misconception that it takes a six-figure, business-savvy person to be an angel investor. Truth be told, all you need is the passion and motivation to discover founders who create disruptive solutions and seek to change the paradigm of the startup ecosystem in India.

Crack the Angel Investment Code, a joint initiative of LetsVenture and YourStory, was written by Shanti Mohan, co-founder and CEO of LetsVenture, for aspiring angel investors who simply don’t know where (or when) to start their angel investing journey.

The book acts as an “Angel Investor’s Handbook” which describes the concept of angel investing and breaks down the process into a step-by-step guide to understanding how to start angel investing.

From understanding asset allocation to setting up an investment thesis and researching transactions, evaluating transactions, post-investment involvement and creating a exit strategy, this book has it all! To top it off, the book provides beginner investors with “The Angel Dictionary” – a comprehensive guide to learning all the key terms you need to know when investing in angel investing.

The book is based on Shanti’s eight years of experience as co-founder and CEO of LetsVenture and also draws inspiration from renowned ecosystem investors and founders who are part of the LetsVenture network, including Abhishek Nag (The angels of the atrium), Raghunan G (Angel investor and founder of Zolve and ex-founder of TaxiForSure.com), Arun Tadanki (lead investor at Waveform Ventures), Dave ashish (CEO, Mirae Asset Venture Investments India), Jagruti Bhikha (Founder and CEO of Rise Together.VC), Manu Chandra (Founder and Manager of Sauce.VC), Mohit Satyanand (veteran angel investor and president and founder of Teamwork Arts), Shruthi Cauvery Iyer (Founder and partner, CaHa Capital), Govind Shivkumar (Director – Investments, Omidyar Network), and Ashwini Asokan (Founder, Mad street den).

LetsVenture and YourStory hope to Crack the Angel Investment Code the ultimate manual for anyone who wants to start investing in startups and be a part of India’s new growth story.
