The Invested Investor

Increasing the success of early stage start-ups by sharing angel investor and entrepreneur war stories

The Invested Investor - becoming, and working with, an angel or angels who add value to the startup journey with help such as mentoring, governance, connecting, future funding and even friendship.

We're on a mission to improve the journeys of startups by educating angels and entrepreneurs to make fewer mistakes, work better together and produce more successful exits.

Our drive behind this is to generate a greater number of successful businesses for the benefit of the entrepreneurs, the angels and the whole ecosystem.

The project is a not-for-profit social enterprise, hopefully covering its costs over time.  The over-arching drive is to educate and to encourage improved transparency and trust.

It will draw on Peter Cowley’s 50K+ hours of being an entrepreneur and 15K+ hours of angel investing, plus help from many others.  Alan Cowley is managing the project (and managing Peter!).

The content provided includes articles, podcasts, video series and at least one book.

Both the online and offline content will be based on real war stories of success and failure from Peter and from many other angels and entrepreneurs, interspersed with lessons on numerous themes such as pitching, hiring & firing, choosing entrepreneurs & investors and handling both the dreamed-for positive exits and the all-too-common failures.
