In order for a startup ecosystem to flourish, the investor base needs to mature and evolve in lock step with the entrepreneur base. Angel Rising conference aims to help a new class of investors by providing the education they need to succeed, grow and mature, just as entrepreneurs do. The conference takes place on April 30 at NYUAD Campus, Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi Conference Center Auditorium (A6).

This year's symposium will focus on how an angel investor's equity in a company changes over time as the company grows and adds additional sources of investment.
