Angels investing in SciTech come with a variety of educational, professional and personality backgrounds. And they have different languages and communication skills. For this reason, Stoaf provides a 3-step education and case training to make them better adapted to a variety of tasks they chose to do.
A series of Theme Seminars provide the needed skills for deal generation and screening. In order to be skilled enough to participate in due diligence teams, we provide a Step 2 level of education and case training leading to an examination as Certified Business Angel (CBA). A Step 3 course provides CBAs the theoretical know-how of probability assessments, valuations, contracting and financial design. If passing the exam, the CBA gets the additional diploma of a Certified Investment Manager (CIM). Mentor-led by General Partners, CIMs get the applied know-how a General Partner needs.
All education and case training underline the purpose of SciTech – to find start-ups with home run potentials and guide them until they reach their potentials.
