Grand Angels members invest in the companies of entrepreneurs that will have a positive effect on our world.
We have built a solid reputation in Michigan for thoughtful, collaborative engagements with entrepreneurs. Our financial, social and intellectual investments guide entrepreneurs, provide mentorship and networking, and create economic development to the West Michigan business community.
Angel investing is a collaborative process paired with an individual investment strategy. Members in the Grand Angels Network invest individually, but share specific resources. Membership in Grand Angels is extended to accredited investors who share our vision for an entrepreneurial ecosystem and to those who will actively contribute to our process.
Our members are individuals who have succeeded in their own business ventures and now have time, finances and expert advice to offer local entrepreneurs.
The advantages of investing through an angel band are numerous:
- Sharing the cost of due diligence and legal support
- Capitalizing on the depth and breadth of domain experience among our members
- Standardized processes and term sheets
- Deal flow is encouraged and entrepreneur-friendly
- You pick and choose the deals you like
- Great camaraderie among like-minded individuals
Several Grand Angels members have chosen to participate in Grand Angels Venture Fund, a traditional venture fund, which is not currently open to new investors, but is open to co-investment.
Members of Grand Angels must be accredited investors as defined by the Securities Exchange Commission, willing to invest in companies presented by Grand Angels, attend regular meetings and events, assist in the due diligence process and mentor entrepreneurs.
