2/ Combined, the results are a ‘gap analysis’ which can inform future research. Both studies were funded by @Charity_Futures, re its work establishing an Institute of Charity at Oxford University. But the findings can inform the agenda of any researchers in this terrain.

1/ I recently spoke to @AccelepriseSF’s 9th cohort. Topic turned to how to approach #angelinvestors for #seedrounds. I shared some of these thoughts with @TomTaulli on @Forbes, forbes.com/sites/tomtaull…
but let me expand...
2/ According to @ACAAngelCapital, every year +200k angels invest +25 billion in +71k startup deals! This has changed 3 big things: 1. how formal VC firms operate 2. Silicon Valley’s stranglehold on talent 3. How founders raise funds. Let me explain.
3/ Let’s start with VCs. Initially wary of angels as competitors, they realized that letting angels take the initial bets actually helps reduce risk, letting them focus their own bets. Win.

Thread alert!
My 6yrs recommending/declining funding applications for Children in Need has ended. I thought charity folks may find some of what I've learnt handy. Here are my 11 (everyone loves a freebie) tips. Just my observations, not the views of CiN or others...
@sccoalition
1. Know the funder. Don't apply for things they don't fund - that just wastes everyone's time (mostly yours). Read their website, guidance, ask questions if it's not clear what they fund. Don't risk the application you spent hours working on going straight into the 'no' pile...
2. Fit the funder to the project, not the other way around. In other words, don't find a funder & think 'what can we do that they would fund?'. Start with the project & then see who would fund that type of work...

💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: threadreaderapp.com to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
3/n
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.

It's #March and one of the earliest pieces of advice I got after founding Prajnya was to a #fundraising drive in this month. Like most advice, it was well-meant but incorrect.
NGOs in India, especially those that have 80G exemption, are supposed to spend 85% of what they receive in a year, within the year. Failing that, we could lose non-profit status. So the Board has to resolve to spend the money within the year.
So there we are, most of us small and under-staffed, planning for March in advance, worrying about money, when donors, thinking about tax savings, start writing cheques. Now we worry differently.
