The Niagara Angel Network has a proven track record of investing in the brightest entrepreneurs. We believe that a good deal starts with good communication and a clear understanding of who we are, how we operate, and what we look for in potential investments.
We use a structured investment process that facilitates efficient and quick decisions. Our funding process involves a thorough screening where approximately 2-3 companies per meeting are selected to present to our Angel investors. Because of our group’s diverse membership, we do not restrict our investments to certain sectors. From ICT, Cleantech, Health, Automotive – NAN has member interest and expertise in a variety of industry domains.
Typically our members invest between $15,000 and $100,000 per transaction individually, and up to $500,000 as a group. We also co-invest and syndicate deals with other Angel groups to leverage additional capital. On average, Angels are patient, with an average term for holding an investment of 3-7 years. For the risk and added value they provide, Angels seek returns of at least ten times their original investment.
What we’re looking for. We evaluate based on management team, market opportunity, growth potential, as well as other factors. To stand out from the rest of the crowd, please take a look at our investment criteria and investment process.
