Member Participation

You will have the opportunity to directly impact our portfolio companies, contribute to deal discussions and due diligence efforts, and connect with accelerators/incubators, other angel groups, university programs, and more.

While there are no formal participation requirements for membership in the group, we believe that our members learn more from doing than anything else. As such, we strongly encourage members to come to monthly meetings, engage in discussions, and attend at least one screening and/or executive committee meeting to see how the process of identifying, evaluating, and ultimately investing in companies works. Essentially – dive in and follow a deal.
