1. Angel Investing: Opportunities Galore for Investors, Entrepreneurs, AND Job Seekers! Jeff Ostroff 34:47

Hi everyone.

What do you know about angel investing? And, more importantly, what do you know about the opportunities it offers not only to those who have money to invest in a start-up business, but to entrepreneurs and job seekers? If this interests you, please listen to what my guest expert, serial entrepreneur, Marc Kramer, has to say on this episode of Looking Forward: Opportunities for Job, Career, Business, and Investment Seekers.

Among other things, Marc talks about (1) his gradual pivot into angel investing, and his establishment of the first organized angel investment group, (2) who are the angel investors and what motivates them, (3) the increasingly global nature of angel investing, and (4) how he says angel investing evolving through the rest of this decade.

In true Looking Forward Fashion, you’ll also learn about the myriad opportunities angel investing offers not only to angel investors and entrepreneurs, but to job seekers, too! (That was somewhat of a surprise to me.) And, even better, Marc provides LOTS of tips for each of these groups to help them capitalize on these opportunities.

Now a little bit about Marc: Marc Kramer is executive director of the Private Investor’s Forum which educates and connects entrepreneurs to Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists (VC’s), Family Offices and Corporate VCs.  Marc, who has a BS in journalism from West Virginia University and a Master’s in Management from Penn State University, is a serial entrepreneur and host of podcast, The Best Business Minds, which is listened to in 71 countries and has won six awards.
