Our Investment Focus

The Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of Southern California (HBS Angels SoCal) consists of local Harvard Alumni interested and engaged in the start-up community and committed to investing in early stage businesses, primarily those based in Southern California. Our group is made up of individuals with broad experience in 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 the group include “money only investor”, Board member, CEO mentor and advisor/consultant. Members of HBS Angels SoCal invest in early stage companies across all industry sectors. 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 Harvard Alumni, but consider all investments based on potential economic returns.
