Maverick Angels
Maverick Angels is a very different kind of angel investor network. We take an entrepreneurial approach to angel investing to create win-win results with portfolio companies.

Entrepreneurs need much more than just capital. They need coaching, training, relationships and other resources which will dramatically increase their chances for success. While we are active angel investors like any other early-stage investment network, we also realize that entrepreneurs need more support when getting started. If they are smarter in how they position their company strategy and business model, they will prove to be a better investments for our members, ultimately reducing our financial risk and increasing our upside in the future. If we work hard to make introductions to prospective customers, team members, partners and other investors, we all win in the end. This open win-win philosophy defines who we are and creates the foundation for our success.

We believe in a more holistic strategy for angel investing. If we better serve the needs of entrepreneurs, our interests will be better-served as investors, resulting in higher return on our investments. This is the reason why we call it an “entrepreneurial approach” to early-stage investing – an angel network which is more entrepreneurial in both our style and focus.

Many of our members are highly successful “serial entrepreneurs” as well as seasoned corporate executives. We understand what it takes to create a valuable business and to create wealth for investors. Our members work closely together to find, qualify and invest in early-stage companies. We know how to maximize our investments throughout the life of our portfolio companies and we work hard to share our knowledge and experience with each other and with our target entrepreneurs to benefit our mutual interests.

In the age of bank failures and a global credit crisis, we believe that this kind of generative collaboration among early-stage investors and visionary entrepreneurs serves as a much-needed antidote and a realistic solution for the tremendous economic challenges facing the world today. Getting back to the fundamental business basics of supporting worthy entrepreneurs creating value-add innovations will help accelerate our nation’s economic road to recovery.

Maverick Angels is committed to making this vision a reality.
