The Process for Entrepreneurs
Seattle Angel seeks to invest in two early-stage growth companies each calendar year. Eligible companies that can apply are within a day’s drive from Seattle, operate in any industry, seek investment of $100k-$2M, and have the potential for a 10x return on investment in 5 years. The application process is straight forward and the following screening and diligence processes are designed to be straightforward, transparent, efficient, and constructive for both the entrepreneur and participating investors.
How does Seattle Angel work?
Two months prior to the next Seattle Angel Conference, a new Investors LLC is formed. Entrepreneurs apply to pitch at the next scheduled Seattle Angel Conference. After initial screening, an extensive due diligence process is performed. During that process, entrepreneurs present their pitch twice to the group of investors and receive feedback. Groups of 2-3 investors form small deep-dive teams to learn more about each entrepreneur prior to the conference. Due diligence meetings can be performed in person or online. Each entrepreneur should pitch at least once in person in front of the investor group prior to the conference.
The first edition of Seattle Angel Conference was held in May 2012. For that event, a new group of Seattle angel investors was formed who joined an LLC and committed $100,000 to be invested in the winner of the conference.
Want to Learn More before committing?
Are you an entrepreneur but not ready to seek funding yet? Want to first see how others do it? Simply attend the next Seattle Angel Conference and find out how it works. Get a chance to network with like-minded entrepreneurs and try your elevator pitch with a large number of attending investors during networking breaks. It may be worth noting that it is the same cost to pitch to Seattle Angel as it is to only attend the conference.
