Benefits of an Angel Group Membership

Anonymity

The structured Angel Group provides a public face to attract deal-flow while enabling individual members to maintain their privacy

Community

Community recognition of the Angel group and its particular investment focus leverages this public presence and creates a wide referral network to increase quality deal sourcing

Professional

Professional management provides efficient deal-matching to investor’s preferences

Collaboration

Collaboration in due diligence provides multiple points of knowledge about market, management, and financial assumptions, ultimately resulting in better investment decisions

Education

Individuals new to the Angel investment community are able to learn from experienced Angel investors on all aspects of the investment process

Knowledge

All participating Angels benefit from evolving best practices knowledge.

Social Network

Regular meetings provide a social network to facilitate camaraderie and the sharing of common goals

Positioning

Structured investment processes and resources, along with the group position, enhance the investor’s position in negotiating terms

Success

Collective investing typically results in companies raising higher dollar amounts. This provides not only greater economic power, but when coupled with the access to the mentoring capacity, contact networks, and the sector & management expertise of the investor group, increases the likelihood of overall success for the investee companies
