Hi there Startup Digester,

Applications are open for Angel Academe’s November pitch event until end of play October 16th.
Fantastic Beasts TV has published a two-part showcase of 40 BAME-founded businesses seeking angel and VC investment, which members can sign up for here.

“If you see an opportunity that has asymmetric returns, you can start to work out the investment needed, and start to educate and quantify the upside (return profile) and time period needed” - great read from Andrew Poesaste on the startup evolution loop.

A framework to understand customer love:

  • The “pain-killing” power of the product
  • Organic referrals
  • Retention
Until next week,
