Become an Associate Member

Associate members are professional service providers who can help us with the investing process. The idea being they may have clients/connections who qualify to be an accredited investor and are interesting in learning more about diversifying their portfolio with Angel investment. Or they may know of an innovative business that is ready for early seed investment and has a pitch deck that has validated their market, their team and their future goals.

As an Associate member you will be able to attend our monthly Angel breakfast meetings and see company presentations. There may be certain parts of some meetings that non-accredited investors are not allowed to attend.

The focus of the breakfasts is to assess potential investment deals – it is not a networking event. Attendance is by invitation only and RSVP is required. Members must sign an NDA and confirm their acceptance of our strict non-solicitation policy.

A colleague invited me to a meeting and then I attended a couple of more meetings to get an idea of how the meetings ran and what the organization was all about. It peeked my interest and I liked the fact that there was this forum that was willing to help out new and up and coming entrepreneurs from both a financial and an experience aspect.
