Why Join York Angels

York Angel Investors is a not-for-profit and is managed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. The Board supervises a small management team. We provide the resources to assist our members in accessing and evaluating high-quality deal flow, but the investment decisions are made by each individual member.

Education

Dedicated sessions and insightful presentations centering on angel investing, crafting portfolios, and mitigating risks are an integral part of our program.

Monthly Meetings

Networking opportunities with knowledgeable investors, professional partners, and innovative entrepreneurs.

Mentorship Oportunity

Opportunity to leverage your experiences and connections to mentor a new generation of entrepreneurs.

Syndicate Deals

When suitable, access opportunities to participate in deals from other angel groups within our interconnected ecosystem.

Our members collaborate on screening and due diligence and pool their investment funds to create critical mass. Each member makes individual investment decisions and understands that investments in early-stage, privately-held ventures are risky and can be illiquid. Typical angel investments can take years before capital is returned, and, in some cases, the company goes out of business and no money is returned. Serving on corporate boards can also expose an individual to substantial personal liability. Our members understand these risks and exposures and evaluate investments on a case-by-case basis.

BECOME AN ANGEL INVESTOR NOW!

We are dedicated to providing an excellent experience and service to all our members. We host 11 Investor Meetings and several other events every year where our members will have an opportunity to consider and invest in companies. Our portfolio companies benefit from our members’ expertise in  Agri-tech, Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Med-Tech, Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), and SaaS. The Investments we make often represent the bridge between Self-Financed, Friends & Family funding and Seed Stage, Venture Capital, or Private Equity funding.

INVESTOR MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES

York Angel Investors is dedicated to providing an excellent experience and service to all our members. We are pleased to offer two membership categories: Individual and Corporate.

Your involvement in the group as an angel investor may range anywhere from very active (Deal Lead, Advisor, Board Member, Consultant) to passive (joining in our deals with investment dollars only). Individual members decide which angel deals they want to participate in. While the sky is often the limit, individuals are usually welcome to participate in deals with as little commitment as $10K. Part of our mandate to our Membership is to provide regular educational seminars so that our Members can build their knowledge, their networks, as well as their investment portfolios.

There are great opportunities in the startup ecosystem, and we are always seeking prospective members who will be actively involved in sourcing, evaluating, funding, and mentoring high-potential companies. Getting an endorsement from a current member is the best way for you to gain membership.

If you are interested in joining York Angel Investors, please start by answering a few questions for us. If you appear to be a good fit, you will be contacted by our staff to discuss the next steps, which may include attending an Investment Meeting, Screening Meeting, or a meeting with someone from our Membership Committee.
