First #KnowCBA event in Barcelona: “How to create your investment strategy”
Barcelona will be holding the first #KnowCBA event in Spain, followed by an agenda of many events and #Pitch2CBA sessions. Our objective with #KnowCBA is to meet with CBA investor members and other local investors to discuss topics on angel investment and cross border investment. Bringing experts and providing education for investors is one of our objectives. On the other hand, our team also takes the opportunity to explain our portfolio of companies, our vehicles of investment and our new deal flow to all the investors attending the event.
We have a fantastic panel for the next #KnowCBA in Barcelona. Well known investors from Spain like Luis Martin Cabiedes, Carlos Blanco and Blair MacLaren. Marta Emerson, our director for Europe will be moderating the panel to find the keys to create the right strategy to invest in companies.
Every investor, big or small, should build a consistent and efficient strategy of investment, and always stick with it. We recommend to specialize on an industry/ies, business model, market/s, stage of maturity, and others, and decide how much you want to invest, if you will do follow ups, how much you want to be involved with helping the companies, and how you can add value beyond the capital. In order to be able to expect return of your investment every investor will have to decide how big their portfolio will be, in other words, how many companies you will invest every year. Many investors recommend to invest in at least 10 companies. We will see what our panel of expert investors will advice you.
Other aspects that investors will need to consider in their strategy are aspects like valuations, percentage of equity, time frame to exit, and other basic aspects of the term sheets.
Having clarity on what you want as investor will help you keep focus on building a consistent portfolio with higher possibilities to get better return of your investment.
After the great panel, Marta Emerson, director for Europe at CBA and Damodar Baliga, deal flow manager at CBA from our Mumbai office, will talk about our portfolio, new deal flow and vehicles of investment that CBA has created in London and Singapore.
