Angel Investor Group Profile
The Angels' Forum (TAF)
The Angels' Forum (TAF), a highly exclusive group of 25 private investors, focuses on consumer, health care, and technology-based industries. TAF provides seed capital funds to early-stage companies as well as second-round and third-round investment to their list of portfolio companies. The group invests in new technology markets that possess huge market opportunities such as software applications, consumer and retail products, investment banking, semiconductors, life sciences, medical devices, Web and E-commerce, telecommunications, and health care services. In addition, TAF only opens its doors for start-up companies within the Silicon Valley and Bay Area communities.

Small in number but competitive in nature, TAF members are skilled entrepreneurs in the business who have a diverse understanding of the present situation in technological industries and are equipped enough to support start-up entrepreneurs with capital, skills, experience, and strategical capabilities. Members offer counseling and expert advice to start-ups who managed to pass the screening process. More importantly, this elite group of investors contribute their skills to the entire organization to foster the development and growth of technology-based industries in Northern California. TAF opted to devote its operations in the region to focus on sufficient resources and management success in the industry. TAF members value executive summaries and business proposals submitted to the group and they personally review each one to look for promising business ventures as opposed to other investment groups whose screening committees are comprised of consultants eying the business opportunities in the trade. As TAF membership is exclusive, investors belonging to the group pay respective fees. TAF only accepts 1-2 members annually for interested angel investors.

On the average, TAF invests on 5-15 start-up companies annually as members meet every week to review over 20 executive summaries submitted online or through referrals. There are no fees and commission charges for entrepreneurs who plan to submit business plans or to those who reached the due diligence process and received expert advice from TAF members. Typical amount of investment ranges from $100,000 to $1M for seed financing while funding for portfolio companies can reach up to $3M. Upon undergoing due diligence process, agreement is made between TAF and the start-up companies that an LLC entity shall be the initial structure of the business for easier corporate management and protection of the investors' privacy.

TAF's list of portfolio companies includes Acumen Medical, Charles Chocolates, Mobile Content Networks (MCN), Penumbra, and NeoGuide Systems.

The Angels' Forum Website

The Angels' Forum website is a good reference for start-up entrepreneurs who are looking for angel investment. It provides a comprehensive discussion of articles regarding TAF's history, investment criteria, membership requirements and responsibilities, portfolio companies and the entire screening process among start-ups. The site also has short testimonials from senior executives of TAF's portfolio companies on how the angel investment group has helped them in achieving success in business. On the other hand, entrepreneurs who wish to send their executive summaries and business plans are guided by a detailed set of instructions as well as useful tips for a business idea to be considered by The Halo Fund management team. The convenience of online submission likewise parallels with security regarding uploaded files. For members and start-ups who plan to apply personally to TAF's head office, the Contact Us page provides the group's office and email address as well as phone and fax numbers to allow feedback and suggestions. Available job openings and career opportunities from TAF's portfolio companies are also listed on the page.
