CONNECT

Humanizing the Angel Investment Process

The Active Angel Network will help you connect with top-notch business people, share knowledge, learn about business(es) and Angel Investing, see targeted Angel Investment Opportunities, and make smarter Angel Investments.

Networks connect people, but great networks inspire people

Connections lead to relationships.  Relationships create TRUST.  Trust is the backbone of success. Active Angels Network creates networking opportunities across industries and experiences to develop a community of leaders and innovators.

Our Philosophy

We believe Angel Investing needs to be reimagined, and the traditional approach is outdated, inefficient and structurally unsound.  We believe that success is predicated on diversity of opinion, diversity of ideas, diversity of knowledge, and a proessional detailed investment process.

  • Monthly investor meetings where two companies present to members. 
  • Quarterly special events with guest speakers.
