Angel Investor Group Profile
The Band of Angels
Founded in 1994, the Band of Angels is Silicon Valley's foremost angel investment group that represents more than 100 executives and elite entrepreneurs in the industry. The Band invests their $50M venture fund in every high technology sector in the industry that includes telecommunications, semiconductors, biotechnology, software and hardware applications, electronics, and Web services. The primary goal of the fund is to create a balance between each sector of the high-tech industry. In addition, the group does not only provide start-up companies their initial seed capital but also privileged to have expert advisers to support their business.

Johannes Severiens, the Band's founder, forged friendships with some of the first and successful entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, gathered all of them, created a pool of high-tech experts, and decided to invest their capital funds to support start-ups. These entrepreneurs were founders and executives of huge companies such as Logitech, Hewlett-Packard, Intuit, National Semiconductor, Sun Microsystems, and Symantec. From the 12 founding executives to the 110 entrepreneur members the Band has today, the group meets every month to screen start-up companies qualified for investment. The selection process determines the approval of a start-up for angel financing and consequently, the submission of requirements and references. In addition, initial investment offer ranges from $300,000 up to $750,000 and leads to $3M at most of total commitments depending on the company's performance from the start of investment.

The Band's track record boasts of enormous figures and huge sums. The group had already invested approximately $117M into 194 companies; nine of which were successfully sold in initial public offerings (IPO) that include PortalPlayer, Genitope Corporation, Cepheid, Digital Think, Neoforma, Keynote, Wit Capital, Cytyc, and Notify Technology; and 33 companies merged or acquires for a profitable gain such as AirZip, Inc., JobFlash, QuickSilver Group, Virtual Silicon Technology, Inc., and SafeView. Furthermore, the Band's cumulative internal rate of return (IRR), which is the determinant of project growth, is a whooping +18%. The highly positive rate, including the losses incurred, shows the competence of the Band in finding a potential market blockbuster among start-up companies.
