Investors play a crucial role on the growth and development of entrepreneurship. Without their help, innovation wouldn´t be possible. Even in cases where the project fails, the learning and knowledge acquired are the seed of a successful idea.
One of the key issues of being a Business Angel is to build a portfolio with winning assets. The better the portfolio, the better the return. Heidi Kakko would give you her key points for you to consider in your portfolio.
