Not every company is right for First State Angels. Our interests need to be aligned in order to make sure we have a successful working relationship and expectations both before, during and after the investment.

INDUSTRY
First State Angels invests in the technology sectors, which include, among others: Mobile, Healthcare IT, Web-Enabled Services, SaaS, Advertising Tech, Fashion Tech, Enterprise Software, Fin-Tech, Medical Devices and Consumer Technologies.

STAGE
Seed- to early-stage deals are considered for First State Angels. However, at a minimum, your company must have proof of concept, a working version of your technology and initial customer traction.

INVESTMENT
First State Angels is not an angel or venture investment fund. Rather, it is an engine that allows our members to make individual investment decisions in an efficient, collaborative-based approach.

LOCATION
Must be a US-based Corporation

MARKET
The entrepreneur should have domain knowledge of its industry and market, customer landscape, the size of its addressable market, and demonstrate that there is an opportunity to grow within the industry.

MANAGEMENT
We look for domain expertise in your industry and strong leadership skills. We are not just investing in your company, we are investing in your ability to run and grow a successful company.

EXIT STRATEGY
Though we don’t expect every company to go public or be purchased by Google or Amazon in 4 years, your company should have that potential. Our members invest to get a return on their investment.

We are open to reviewing traditional companies if the deal makes sense.
