Are you an accredited investor* interested in learning more about angel groups?

Angel groups have grown significantly in the last decade, as more and more organizations have been established and more individual angels have joined the groups. Angel groups now exist in nearly every American state and Canadian province, and they offer accredited angel investors the opportunity to invest in and help build successful companies - while also having a good time. Every group is different in terms of investment strategy and culture, but ACA member groups offer interested investors a variety of benefits. Most angel groups are looking for new investors to join their groups.

Benefits to investment of belonging to an angel group:

* Dividing the work eases the time and pain of evaluating and monitoring investments
* Standardized processes & term sheets
* Better deal flow - quality and quantity
* Greater potential to diversify your angel portfolio, and reducing risk of investment losses
* Stay current on new ideas, technology, emerging markets
* Networking and fun with a peer group of successful entrepreneurs and executives
* Build your investment skills by learning from other members and taking educational courses
* Support your community by mentoring entrepreneurs and helping young and innovative companies grow
* In many angel groups, individual angels may remain anonymous while the group has a central contact
