Entrepreneurship is thriving even in this market. Take a look at some promising new companies with fellow alums as part of "MIT Angels". MIT Angels are interested and engaged in the start-up community and committed to investing their time and money into new, cutting edge, early stage businesses.
Our group is made up of individuals with broad experience in technolgy, semiconductor, energy, general management, entrepreneurship, finance, consulting and law. The involvement of the group in portfolio companies will vary from deal to deal. Our portfolio companies will have access to the group for general advice and direct involvement by individual members where we can make a difference to a portfolio investment. Potential roles for MIT Angels include “money only investor”, Board member, CEO mentor and advisor/consultant.
Our group meets on a quarterly basis and invite three startups per meeting that can benefit either from your advice or investment as they seek angel investors (with a preference for companies started by MIT alum entrepreneurs). The Deal Selection Team evaluates more than 50 business plans to select the 3 presenting companies. Entrepreneurs can expect a thorough examination and, occasionally, an investment from some of Silicon Valley's most accomplished entrepreneurs.
MIT Angels invests in early stage companies across all industry sectors. Ideal candidates are companies seeking $250,000 to $1,500,000. MIT Angels invest as individuals, in aggregate up to $350,000 in any particular investment. We invest in “for profit” businesses, and expect our portfolio companies to achieve a successful exit within five years. We do not invest in R&D intensive businesses or businesses with high capital requirements. We strongly encourage business plan submissions from MIT Alumni, but consider all investments based on potential economic returns.
