Members of the Houston Angel Network are active participants in angel events and activities. They attend business presentations and perform evaluations of investment prospects, as well as grace social events to widen their network of business contacts. There are also available educational seminars for members to further advance their knowledge and skills on investment. The angel investment group members are all accredited investors and are respected professionals in the business community of Texas, and are vigorously involved in building investment related partnerships. Membership to the Houston Angel Network is by invitation and requires an annual membership fee. Those who are interested to join should contact the managing director, Mr. Kala Marathi, through telephone or electronic mail. All applications will be subjected to a screening process for qualification.

For funding applications, Texas-based companies should submit an application and executive summary through electronic mail. Companies can submit their own style of executive summary, although a sample format is available for download in the Houston Angel Network website. All applications received are subject to review and evaluation of the group members. A company that would meet the significant requirements, will be invited for a business presentation. Prior to the presentation, the company shall also be provided assistance in preparation for the final business presentation. The company's details and business plan will also have the opportunity to be posted on the group's website, exclusive for the members' review. Business presentations are usually held on the regular breakfast meetings of the investment group. If a company passes the business presentation screening stage, further evaluation process will be carried out for a probable investment deal in the offing.
