Ep002 – Shelli Trung (Angel Investor) on how to approach investors and what gets investors interested

In the 2nd episode of The Startup Playbook Podcast, I interview Shelli Trung, who is an active angel investor in Fintech, Real Estate Tech and Impact focused startups.

Recognised as one of the “Top 100 Investors to follow on Twitter”, Shelli Trung has a remarkable story, starting life as a refugee, becoming a successful founder and then using her experience to become an angel investor.

In this episode, Shelli shares the right way to approach investors, what she looks for in investment opportunities, what some of her investment red flags are and why it’s important for startup founders to hear no.
