Angel One of Silicon Valley’s most successful angel investors shares his rules for investing in startups.

There are two ways to make money in startups: create something valuable—or invest in the people that are creating valuable things.

Over the past twenty-five years, Jason Calacanis has made a fortune investing in creators, spotting and helping build and fund a number of successful technology startups—investments that have earned him tens of millions of dollars. Now, in this enlightening guide that is sure to become the bible for twenty-first century investors, Calacanis takes potential angels step-by-step through his proven method of creating massive wealth: startups.

As Calacanis makes clear, you can get rich—even if you came from humble beginnings (his dad was a bartender, his mom a nurse), didn’t go to the right schools, and weren’t a top student. The trick is learning how angel investors think. Calacanis takes you inside the minds of these successful moneymen, helping you understand how they prioritize and make the decisions that have resulted in phenomenal profits. He guides you step by step through the process, revealing how leading investors evaluate new ventures, calculating the risks and rewards, and explains how the best startups leverage relationships with angel investors for the best results.

Whether you’re an aspiring investor or a budding entrepreneur, Angel will inspire and educate you on all the ins of outs. Buckle up for a wild ride into the world of angel investing!, angelina jersey shore, angel island, angelina jolie, angelina pivarnick, angellist, angela bassett, angels, angela simmons, angela davis, angels in america


  • 5.0 out of 5 starsAngel is a must read book for founders -- not just future angel investors!

    By Julie Roth Novack
    I listened to Angel via audio book because I'm a HUGE fan of Jason's podcast. I had thought it would be interesting to learn how new angel investors can become sophisticated startup investors with Jason's coaching. What I had expected was how helpful the book was to me as a founder and CEO! With in the next 6 months, I'm raising our Series A from my company - PartySlate. The advice Jason gives to angel investors really helped me understand some of the important points to cover in my pitch. (for example, answering the "why now" question) I am confident that every founder raising money will get some learnings and insights from this book. I strongly recommend reading this (or better yet listening to the book) if you are an angel investor or a founder.
  • I rated 5 because I couldn’t 7

    I had a previous record of reading a book in a week. This one took me 2 days.
  • Pure Cutting Edge Mentorship.

    READ THE BOOK. Inside is the Key to turn your fortune around. Super Easy to read and straightforward, Angel is not only giving you the tools to successfully start your Angel adventure –– but is rather plotting the entire course for you! Empowering you and your beloved ones to immediately benefit from such HUGE opportunity. I was lucky enough to meet Jason in person at one of the events he organises, which are also packed with A+ information fyi, and he is just as awesome as he sounds in the book. Thanks for sharing such Great Knowledge with the Rich and the Poor's of the World. We love you Jason!
  • Thank you Jcal

    By E407
    As an Encore entrepreneur, I learned more about what I needed to focus on in my own SaaS startup in the four hours it took to read this book ( like by answering Jason's 4 questions, investor updates, etc.) than I have from all the VC blogs & podcasts combined. Jason writes about the things an early stage founder should know. If you are a Founder, read this book and get the road map to get you & your company focused on the right things & then- ""
  • Buy it twice

    By Donald Draper
    Great book with very honest and direct advice. I found the stories helpful and more important credible. If you have any interest in the topic this book is worth your time. Now if I can only get an invite to his real syndicate!
  • Great book to learn how to start angel investing

    By Trace Cohen
    I’ve been in the startup world for 10 years, full-time angel investing for the last two and I learned a lot from this book. Jason makes it very clear that investing isn’t for everyone but if you want to try, start small, learn and build from there. Investing in startups is a contact sport and you need to basically do it full-time, along with a handful of investments to get started and even then, will probably lose money. If you’re looking for a general self-help book, this isn’t it. Jason writes in a conversational way that makes it feel like he’s talking to you, walking you through the steps and coaching you along the way. I’m going to start implementing what I learned right away and fix the mistakes I’ve been making to get better!
  • Simple, honest, credible and informative

    By RecoveringCPA
    As a longtime real estate guy, I thoroughly enjoyed Jason's simple, but informative guidelines to Angel investing. His frank and brutally honest writing style allows the reader to experience the Angel world, rather than digest the words on a page. In all honesty, from his appearances on TV, I have always perceived Jason as a bit of of a d-bag. But, he knows he is, and anyone with that kind of self awareness and successful track record might not make him a golfing buddy, but does make him worthy of directing my investments dollars. The book is definitely a 10x. Joe
  • I highlighted so many things... it's kind of embarrassing

    By CRiddersem
    Thanks for writing this book Jason. After reading countless blog articles, watching numerous interviews, and listening to too many podcasts on angel investing, I mistakingly assumed I knew all there was to know. I was wrong. I highlighted an embarrassing amount of items and you most likely made the difference between me being a 1x-er and a 10x-er.
  • Excellent book by @jason

    By charlesjo_us
    Big fan of Jason Calacanis since he educates the public about the startup world for free through tweets, blogs, and podcasts. Remember that the startups and investors that funded them were a big mystery before the likes of Jason and others started publishing. Best part of Jason is that he talks like the rest of us and isn't caught up in what I imagine a wildly successful investment record could do to an ego.
