What are the benefits to you of being a HBS Alumni Angel?
Through our structured and collaborative deal sourcing process, we enable our members to see far more deal opportunities than typical private investors are likely to see operating independently and our deal flow is growing. We also have exposure to a growing universe of deals through our sister HBS Alumni Angels organizations operating in other cities around the world.
Our deals are screened and analyzed
We have a diverse screening committee, whose members have prior experience in venture capital, private investing, investment banking, early stage startup management and a variety of other disciplines. Our collaboration provides a deeper and broader analytical capability to review deals than is otherwise typically available to private investors.
Our Angels have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with screened companies. We hold on average one dinner meeting each calendar quarter, at which we bring together selected companies and our Angels. The meetings offer great opportunities to evaluate the presenting companies, discuss the opportunities with peers, meet other like-minded investors, and to learn more about early stage investing.
Collaborative Due Diligence
For those who are interested in potentially investing in a presenting company, we form teams that work together on due diligence, review of deal documents and negotiation of terms. Most private investors are on their own during this critical process.
Our quarterly pitch dinner events and other activities provide great opportunities for interacting with an accomplished group of like minded investors.
Participation in programming is restricted to members only. Prospective members must meet the following minimum requirements to apply:
