About this Program

A group of Oxford educated angel investors based in the SF Bay Area, funding Oxford-affiliated startups in SF Bay Area only. (Must meet both criteria.)

Our Investment Focus

The Oxford Angel Fund is interested in investing in Oxford entrepreneurs in the San Francisco Bay Area to cultivate the development of entrepreneurial talent, and help Oxford alumni starting out on the entrepreneurial path. The Fund’s investors are all graduates of Oxford University, with degrees and experience in varied subjects, including Engineering Science, Computation, English Literature, Biochemistry, Social Anthropology, Business and Law.


The goals of the Fund are:


• Build a community of innovative Oxonians in the San Francisco Bay Area


• Advance the profile of Oxford University in the heart of the entrepreneurial universe


• Leverage alumni experience and networks to “pay it forward” in return for the opportunities resulting from an Oxford education.


The Fund will provide “angel round” financing of companies with a strong University of Oxford relationship which operate in the Bay Area. The Fund is expected to invest in companies in a wide range of industries, reflective of the breadth of Oxford entrepreneurship. The Fund’s investors will work actively with portfolio companies, leveraging the hundreds of alumni already engaged in the Oxford Entrepreneurs of the Bay community.


The initial closing of the Fund in November 2016 was oversubscribed. The Fund will remain open to additional qualifying investors (Oxford educated investors living in the SF Bay Area) until the Fund achieves its planned maximum size.
