Helping alumni connect with startups
INSEAD Angels of Silicon Valley is an INSEAD Club operating on the US west coast.
We invite alumni interested in angel investments to learn, contribute and actively participate in discovering promising early stage startups.
Accredited investors are able to participate in our investment opportunities, but all alumni are welcome to participate at a level they are comfortable with.
We generally source deals with connections to our alumni, either as entrepreneurs or investors. We are happy to consider any promising investment opportunities that you become aware of.
We hold regular pitch meetings, about once a quarter, Our leadership team screens opportunities and coaches the selected companies on factors that are of interest to our investment community.
When there is interest in a particular deal, we form a due diligence team to do a deep dive into the company to assess their viability, terms, and chances for success. The DD effort forms the basis of our decision to write checks or form a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV).
