Angel Investor Group Profile
Golden Gate Angels
Since its foundation in 2000, Golden Gate Angels continues to be one of the foremost angel investment groups in the San Francisco area that aims to provide seed investment and professional mentoring to start-up companies with huge market potential and business growth.

Golden Gate Angels believes in the ability of start-up companies to grow as huge, sustainable businesses. The group continues to be impressed with the way these early-stage companies are doing despite financial limitations and numerous market competitors.

Typical investment ranges from $50,000 up to $150,000 in companies that passed the screening criteria and the due diligence process conducted by the group's members. With regard to its track record, Golden Gate Angels had invested $300,000 worth of seed capital in four start-up companies in 2004. Since its inception, the group had already closed 10 successful deals worth $2,000,000 in various companies in the San Francisco area. 3 Rings Designs and Mobile Greetings are two of the group's accomplished companies in its portfolio.
