About this Program

IrishAngels is an angel network comprised of 230 investors. We use our extensive Notre Dame network to provide value to our portfolio companies.

Our Investment Focus

IrishAngels invests in seed stage companies in the following industries: B2B software, consumer products, consumer software, medical devices. 


Vitalize Venture Group is an early stage investment platform that deploys $10M+ each year via two investment firms: VitalizeVC and IrishAngels. We are based out of Chicago with offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and cover a multitude of industries as an early stage investing team. As our platform moves forward, we are excited to see how the value of our combined angel group and venture fund can be greater than the sum of the individual entities. 

IrishAngels was founded in 2012 as an angel network affiliated with Notre Dame. We are comprised of 230 investors, and use our extensive Notre Dame network to provide value to our portfolio companies. To be clear, a Notre Dame connection is not required for funding, and we have made successful investments across all industries.

VitalizeVC was founded in 2017 as a seed stage venture fund initially called IrishAngels Ventures. The fund was launched as a result of continued growth and investment appetite among the IrishAngels investor network. Rebranded as VitalizeVC in 2019, the fund continues to grow and find success within the venture capital world.
