About the Author
Karen Y. Rands is a Venture Catalyst, a Compassionate Capitalist, Economist, Investor, and Entrepreneur. She is the Leader and Advocate for the Compassionate Capitalist Movement.
She believes entrepreneurism is the greatest source for wealth creation. “You don't have to be a successful entrepreneur to create generational wealth if you can learn how to invest in those companies that have the potential to be the next big thing”, according to Karen. With the recent deregulation, investors of all types have the opportunity to own a piece of an ‘up & coming’ successful company before they go public or get acquired by a bigger company.
Karen has been described as a dominant force in the entrepreneur and investor markets with her blog, published articles, frequent speaking engagements, and her Compassionate Capitalist radio show. She has been a frequent speaker and mentor within numerous Small Business and Economic Development initiatives and was the recipient of the Advocate of the Year award in 2016 at the Flight to Freedom Summit in San Ramon, California, for her work to promote Compassionate Capitalism.
Karen left the corporate world over a decade ago, having been involved with many product launches, to pursue her passion for seeing innovation funded and to help the entrepreneur and investor community she served create thriving businesses. Karen immersed herself in the world of angel investing, first as the protégé to the founder of the Network of Business Angels & Investors (NBA&I), and then as the Managing Director to reboot the angel network with improved structure and processes. She interviewed hundreds of angel investors and venture capitalists over the years and developed the “Learn to be an Angel Investor” free e-book series. That reboot led to NBA&I being named one of the most active angel groups in the Southeast in 2009 and listed on Inc Magazine’s top 50 angel groups in the U.S. NBA&I was sunset in 2012 and reemerged as the National Network of Angel Investors (NNOAI). Inside Secrets to Angel Investing is the updated version of her original “Learn to be an Angel Investor” e-book series and is the catalyst for the Compassionate Capitalist Movement.
Karen defines “Compassionate Capitalist” as: A person who invests time, resources, knowledge, experience, AND money into an entrepreneurial endeavor to bring innovation to market, create jobs, and ultimately create wealth for the investors and founders.

Ms. Rands shares a considerable amount of expert level, comprehensive knowledge in a clear and concise manner.
There is a HUGE need for Compassionate Capitalists in our global and local systems. As Ms. Rands pointed out, "lack of knowledge" keeps a large percentage of potential angel investors from venturing into this exciting field. She has taken the guess work out of angel investing by enabling her readers to invest with their eyes wide open to the intricacies of this deeply enriching activity.
My own background includes 20+ years of expertise in providing management information systems support and technical writing to a number of national companies. 20 years ago I researched angel investing, with dreams of one day being part of a team of investors in a variety of projects I've planned over the years. Karen Rands' INSIDE SECRETS to Angel Investing clearly identified my interests in being what is called a "Professional Angel."
At 66 my fire has been lit to get involved with the local angel community. Ms. Rands has given me new drive and visions of how to approach the angel investing market.
I highly recommend this invaluable source of information.
Thank you, Karen, for your dedication and exceptional work in compiling and presenting this priceless resource.
I also strongly recommend this book for those who are raising capital. They will benefit greatly from knowing what the most savvy angel investors are thinking and the questions they are likely to be asking. Chapter 3, on “The Investment Cycle… Introduction to Marriage” is especially beneficial to those raising capital. You will absolutely want to be able to answer the 12 important questions she delineates in this chapter!
And be sure to pay attention to the 44 Insider Secrets scattered throughout the book. They are great, and are worth far more than you will pay for the entire book!
In summary, if you are thinking about becoming an angel investor (and with the new crowdfunding regulations, who isn’t?), of you want to become a more sophisticated angel investor, or you are thinking about raising capital for your own venture, STUDY THIS BOOK! You will be glad you did!
