Our Investment Focus
The Harvard Angel group consists of Bay Area Harvard Alumni interested and engaged in the start-up community and committed to investing in early stage businesses. 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 Harvard Angels include “money only investor”, Board member, CEO mentor and advisor/consultant.
Harvard Angels invests in early stage companies across all industry sectors located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ideal candidates are companies seeking $250,000 to $1,500,000. Harvard 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 Harvard Alumni, but consider all investments based on potential economic returns.
