Angel investing

Angel investing is different from investing in stocks, real estates, bonds, and other financial instruments. Angel investing empowers you to grow your knowledge of the latest innovations or outside your core industry and learn from your startup founders. 
 
Valuation gains may enjoy significant multiples that exceed other instruments, but it will also have its corresponding risk of losing all of your sum invested. Angel investing is not compulsory and there is no judgment involved if you do not angel invest as a member. 
 
We will regularly organize sharing sessions featuring experienced angel investors.

Ways to invest through she1K

1. Directly to a startup
2. Syndicate with a few other she1K members by setting up an SPV
3. Pool membership fees to invest as she1K
An SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle) is set up if the startups prefer the agreement to be made as a single entity. Otherwise, she1K and/or each participating member may execute a direct agreement with the startup. Any angel investing decision made by any member is at their own risk. she1K is not liable for the success or failure of startups as members will choose to invest individually or as a group.
