diversity and collaboration are in our dna
Angel Academe is a fast-growing and award-winning angel network. Our angel investors are entrepreneurs, senior professionals and people enjoying portfolio careers. They want to do something interesting, useful and stimulating with a proportion of their investible assets by supporting new businesses. They have an appetite for educated risk and potentially higher returns than other asset classes. Most of them are women, but men who want to be part of a diverse network are also very welcome.
We invest in ambitious and highly scalable technology businesses with at least 1 woman on the founding team. We believe that to help more women “go big” with their technology ventures, we need to increase the number of women investors. We also want to become (even) better investors by sharing our experience and investing together in a fun and collaborative environment. Through mentoring, education and collaboration with experienced angels as well as technology and sector specialists, we help members pool their money, expertise and resources to perform due diligence, build a portfolio of smart investments and support the businesses they invest in.
Rigorous Screening & INVESTMENT Process
We have a thorough 4-stage selection process to ensure that the businesses that pitch to us are both high quality and relevant to the domain expertise and interests of our group. Each application is reviewed by at least 5 of our angel investors as well as technology and sector experts.
As an angel investor, you’re responsible for your own due diligence, but we encourage our investors to work together as a team and our established processes will help you get to investment decision as smoothly as possible. You can read about our process and doing a deal with Angel Academe here.
