ACA welcomes the opportunity to connect with technology platforms made up of exclusively accredited investors ("Accredited Platforms") to join ACA through a new & unique membership option in support of our mission to "fuel the success of angel groups and accredited investors in high growth early stage ventures." Given the unique structure and purpose of accredited investment platforms, this membership opportunity blends significant value for platform leadership with an option for individual platform members to engage through discounted individual membership.

This opportunity is designed to connect the growing ACA member network with a variety of opportunities for deals and peer exchange.  We look forward to working with you. The annual cost of an ACA accredited platform membership is $2500. 

Please note that ACA is not a source of capital or able to provide referrals to investors.
