Early investors made 500x returns on their investment when they invested into one of the founders on this course. That means that if you had invested £5000 in to his company, you would have exited with £2.5m.
When we (Mohsin and Ibrahim 👋) started investing in startups we knew they could be extremely lucrative – but we were also very confused.
Over the years we have become less confused. This angel investing course is to help you demystify startup investing and write your first check with confidence.
How are you supposed to know if you’re staring the next Uber or Netflix in the face? Where are you even supposed to find these up-and-coming companies? How are you supposed to do your due diligence? What should you look for from a legal perspective? How do you create a diversified portfolio to give you a good chance of finding the next big thing?
And so many more questions.
We’ve got some of the finest minds in the venture world to reveal their insights.
The course features venture capital fund managers, angel investors, top lawyers and successful founders (who often make the best investors because they know exactly what it takes to build great companies) all sharing their amazing insights and practical advice for you.

Because at Cur8 Capital we believe that it’s vital that we open up access to a diverse base of angel investors.
Diverse angels means investing in diverse founders. At Cur8, that’s a world we believe in.
For too long, venture capital has been the reserve of multi-millionaires who have a few million spare to put into elite venture funds.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.
Who is behind this course?
Ibrahim and Mohsin are partners at a venture firm called Cur8 Capital. They’ve invested alongside some top names in the venture world in some of the hottest startups. The Cur8 mission is to increase access to the highest-quality venture for angel investors from all backgrounds.
Is the course really free?
Yes. To be honest, the original idea was for this to be a paid course (and some people bought early access). It cost tens of thousands of pounds to make. But the more we got into the production of the course, the more we realised that the impact this course can have is far greater than any monetary return. So why put up barriers unnecessarily?
We will separately be making full-length, unedited interviews available for a fee if you do want more though.
