Understanding the fundamentals of how to execute early stage investment deals is the key to increasing investment returns, growing successful companies and creating jobs.

After having delivered over 300 courses throughout the United States and in 14 other countries, we believe that education is fundamental to securing a successful early stage investment.

The Programs

Angel Resource Institute programs are part of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation's Power of Angel Investing series of seminars and workshops.

Seminars and workshops are full or half day in length and are taught in an interactive classroom-style format that includes presentations, distinguished panel discussions, and case studies. Programs are also delivered by ARI's renowned faculty of certified lead instructors, all of whom have 10-plus years of angel investment and entrepreneurial leadership experience.

For content ARI does not rely solely on the experience of one or two successful investors. The real value of ARI's content comes from the Kauffman Foundation and the collective experience and best practices of thousands of individual investors and angel investment groups. We also leverage our strong partnership with the Angel Capital Association (ACA) and their 190 members who represent 8,000 individual investors.
