Angels are still investing in good deals and good deals are still finding angel investors.
The answer to getting a deal done is syndication.
Angel groups that participate in other angel group deal flow and invest side by side have a much better chance of getting in on the best deals.
Due diligence is spread over more people, rounds have a much higher chance of being closed, momentum is gained. Smart capital is going to the best deals.
Everyone wins!
