Building an investor community


Encouraging entrepreneurship

For Entrepreneurs

We generally look for the types of indicia of success expected by venture capital and other investors. For example, we like to see strengths in the team, potential market, technology and business model. We like to see proof of market through sales, customer adoption or a strong case for customer need for the proposed solution.

We like to see capital-efficient proposals that will allow companies in which we invest to achieve growth and success without the need for large amounts of follow-on investment.

The Berkeley Angel Network is particularly interested in seeing companies that are formed by students and/or alumni of UC Berkeley, or that are based on technology from UC Berkeley. However, companies considered for investment are not necessarily limited to such a connection.
