We believe that great companies take root in unconventional places and that successful entrepreneurs frequently break the mold. The ideas we back come from a variety of sources: an MBA student who is trying to change new media advertising practices; an experienced entrepreneur seeking to commercialize a disruptive biofuels technology; or an executive looking to spin out and develop an abandoned asset developed by a pharmaceutical company.

    Angel Investor Forum
    Next Stage Capital
    Angel Investor Forum<BR>Next Stage Capital

    The Angel Investor Forum (AIF) was founded in 2004 in response to the growing need for an organized angel effort in Connecticut. Due to the widening gap in the capital markets, there is a shortage of funding available at the seed stage ($250K-$5M). This funding gap represents a great opportunity for investment in companies with substantial growth potential but an inability to attract venture capital. AIF members invest their time, talent and money in supporting companies with solid business models and their efforts to grow successfully.

    Angel financing is the lifeblood of growing companies. Connecticut has more angels per capita than any other state. The Angel Investor Forum organizes the resources of the angels by streamlining the deal flow. We present monthly reviews of two targeted, pre-screened companies that are matched to investor's interests. Each month we target one of the four investment types: medical devices, financial services, software and consumer products. Materials are summarized and distributed prior to each meeting.

    Next Stage Capital
    Next Stage Capital focuses on Mid-Atlantic based seed and early stage opportunities in the following sectors and verticals: Business Software, Software as a Service, Healthcare and Healthcare Technology (non-FDA), IT Infrastructure, including cloud, network and security, Financial Services, Media, Digital Media, and Communications, Mobile.

    We typically become involved at the early revenue stage in a company's development and will make investments in companies whose revenue ranges from zero to $5 million. Our initial investments typically range from $250,000 to $1 million. We approach each investment with a long-term horizon and reserve heavily in anticipation of participating in multiple follow-on rounds.
