Is an Angel Investment right for me?
It is important that you understand who we are, how we operate, what we look for in potential investments, and what we expect in return.Angels typically invest between $25,000 and $100,000 per transaction individually, and from $250,000 to $750,000 as a group. They invest in one to four transactions per year. On average, angels are patient, with an average term for holding an investment of eight years. For the risk and added value they provide, angels seek returns of at least ten times their investment.We receive dozens of business plan submissions each month. Our funding process involves a thorough screening process where approximately three companies are selected bi-monthly to present to our members for funding consideration.
What we’re looking for
We evaluate based on management team, market opportunity, growth potential, stage, as well as other factors. To stand out from the rest of the crowd, make sure that you meet our investment criteria and that you are fully prepared with a polished business plan and presentation.
