“Cannabis Startups Angel Track class gave me the necessary insights from long-time investors to make sound investment decisions, and more importantly, help me find my own investment style and ways to help founders. On top of that, I now have a community of operators who are not only people I can count on to co-invest together, but also friends.”

1. Who should apply?

Anyone interested in getting started or improving as an angel investor in cannabis startups should apply. You might have started a company, worked at a fast-growing startup or somewhere larger. You should be excited about backing the next wave of tech-entrepreneurs.

2. Do I need to be an accredited investor to apply?

No. While investing in startups requires you be accredited, you don’t need to be an accredited investor to take part in this program.

3. Do I need to have made angel investments before?

No. We’re expecting several participants will be completely new to angel investing. Some of them have also been active in other fields and some of them bring experience in health-tech!

4. Where are the sessions held?

All the sessions in Spring 2020 will be held in-person during CannaTech in Tel-Aviv and Berlin at the ICBC. 

5. Can I apply to both sessions?

Yes, the sessions will be in Tel Aviv at the 31.3.2020 and Berlin session will be held at the 2.4.2020. We encourage you to apply to the city in which you spend no time as it will offer you the most value in meeting others and learning from those around you. You will have to choose a city in your application and we will only review one application per person.

6. When are the in-person sessions?

Sessions run from 6pm-9pm in both cities.

7. Do I receive any investment capital as part of being in the program?

This program is focused entirely on education and community.

Applications for the autumn session are now closed. We close the Spring Session at the end of February 2020.
