Is there a difference in expectation and attitude between Angels in the USA vs those in other Geographical regions and are there disadvantages because of this?
Surprisingly, no. Angels of a certain ‘level of professionalism’ have more in common with each other regardless of geography, than do novice and ‘super angels’ in the same city.
I am friends with many professional angels from around the world, and my analyses (allowing for our individual investment preferences) are virtually identical to those of Dave Berkus in Southern California, Matey de Nedkov in Montreal, Phillippe Gluntz in Paris and Dušan Stojanovic in Sweden.
That said, I have seen slight regional differences, including: a preference for Big Ideas on the West Coast, financial and advertising technology on the East Coast, and gaming and retail in Europe.
