We will consider participation in equity or debt rounds, either as direct investors or as part of an Angel Investor syndicate. We’re big on impact, so we tend to participate in early-stage rounds. We do not disclose check sizes. We’re perhaps a bit unique in our approach. We optimize investments for success, then Mission alignment, then impact, then profit.
For early stage (inception to Series A) ventures, we don’t normally consider investment in direct cold-approach ideas. The common path to our investment is through Incubator/Accelerator or Advisory Services. We tend to want involvement with you and your idea first. At early stages, this is our best way to ascertain chances of success.
For mid and late stage ventures (Series A and beyond), the aforementioned approach is still most ideal for us, but you’re probably more into fund territory. However, we may still consider investment, particularly as part of a syndicate formed via our network or regional angel group memberships.
Please see How We Help Founders & Startups and Pricing for more information on our standard approach.
We’re also currently working with a group and planning to raise and manage a formal fund in 2021 with a strong investment thesis. Watch this space for updates.
