Once a trend or category is hot and well defined, it is typically an overcrowded place for angel investors to write checks, so I try to avoid investing in trends. I tend to be most interested in founders with superior insight into their chosen market and the ability to attract quality management, investors and industry partners.
There are thousands of wonderful ideas and valid business opportunities that do not support the model of angel and VC investment for a high IRR through acquisition or IPO. These are not a good fit for my angel investing efforts and typically these entrepreneurs would be better served by not taking on equity investors, who are not friends and family.
