I've noticed that a lot of angel group meetings happen during the work day. My understanding is that most angels have other day jobs. Do people just take time off work to go to these meetings? Are most angels entrepreneurs themselves?

Also interested in this. Maybe most are investing full time for their day jobs?

I think you may be unfamiliar with wealth as a time lubricant. Not to be flippant or disrespectful of anyone. Nor to ignore those folks who just can pull off amazing things with just bravado.

I’m saying that less wealth == less discretionary time. And less potential risk tolerance would be another way to express that.
Necessity may be the mother of invention but work for hire buys food whereas hiring 100 hungry people potentially provides ownership of inventions.
Again, this is more a realistic statement of how the world generally works, from my perspective.
Hopefully that answers your question.
