Our Investment Focus

Investors' Circle seeks early or expansion-stage companies whose businesses address significant social or environmental issues.


Typically these companies are focused in the following sectors: - Clean Energy & Clean Technology - Community Development - Education - Global Economic Development - Global Health Delivery - Health Technology - Medical Devices - Software, Applications, Ecommerce, Websites, etc., that Address Social and/or Environmental Challenges - Sustainable Agriculture - Sustainable Apparel - Sustainable Consumer Products - Sustainable Foods & Beverages - Sustainable Infrastructure & Materials - Water Technology - Wellness


Deal Stage: We consider private companies in many different deal stages including early, expansion and growth. We do not consider individuals or technologies, only fully-formed companies. Companies that do not expect to generate revenues of at least $5 million within the next 5 years will not be accepted.


Financing Needs: We do not accept companies with capital needs greater than $3 million as that amount is beyond the capacity of our angel network. Companies with capital needs between $200k and $3m tend to gain the greatest interest from our investors.


Scalability: Investors’ Circle members are interested in maximizing social and environmental impact as well as financial return. For this reason, companies that have a potential for national or international growth tend to find more interest within our network than companies that do not have such potential. For example, we will consider a submission from a company that sells organic coffee to retailers across the country but not from a company that is launching a single, local, organic coffee shop.


Other Criteria: We do not accept applications from purely non-profit organizations. We will accept for-profit subsidiaries or partners of non-profits. Investors’ Circle does consider non-US companies, but these companies should be aware that our members are primarily interested in US-based firms due to the complications of investing in foreign companies. The most likely way that a foreign enterprise would find interest among Investors’ Circle is as a US-based firm with operations overseas. Fees for our services must be paid in US dollars. Key Characteristics Companies that are most likely to find interest within our membership will have a combination of the following characteristics: * A strong management team * A clear understanding of their market(s) * Legally defensible technology * Third party product or business model verification * Clear commitment to a social and/or environmental mission
