  1. Paul,

    We are looking to do a B Round, our existing Angels can do $3M, but we need more. Should we syndicate with other Angel groups, or go VC? We are sort of in between here, aren’t we?

    • William, the safe answer is “it depends.” But I know you know that, and I always HATE those kind of answers. So…

      First off, it is AMAZING your exiting angels can get you to $3 million! That is exceedingly rare.

      Second, if you are in a region with vibrant angel syndication, ask your lead investors to reach out to other angel group leaders and test the waters for a syndication. The largest angel deal I heard of was about $4.5 million in the US South West.If you only need $1-2 million more, it is probably in the realm of possibility. If you need a lot more than that, then generally angels can’t do it.

      Does that help?
