Angel Group Likes Lights, Camera and Action of Indie Films
As an experienced tech entrepreneur and angel investor, Rizwan Virk was happy to see a solid return on one of his recent investments after just one year.
But the exit didn’t come from a software start-up or social media company finding a corporate acquirer. Instead, Virk’s quick payoff came from an independent film.
Virk is a member of FilmAngels, a Silicon Valley group whose members back film productions–mostly small, independent projects. Founded in 2005, FilmAngels is made up mostly of tech executives and investors who apply their business and venture capital experience to the filmmaking world.
