The Southern Oregon Angel Investment Network is comprised of accredited investors from across the Rogue Valley. These investors are looking to make seed capital investments in local startups and existing companies raising capital to launch and grow a scalable venture.
These angel network members will invest as little as $20,000 and for the right opportunity as much as $300,000 in companies unable to raise capital from friends-and-family or traditional bank financing instruments.
Startups or existing companies with scalable expansions seeking angel capital are encouraged to contact SOREDI and submit a business plan for possible review among a core group within the angel network. Investors will review business plans and may consider further due diligence to determine if there may be wider interest from among the angel investors. Applicants are strongly encouraged to research and understand the opportunities as well as challenges of raising capital from an angel network or angel investors.
The application process to the investment network is first managed by SOREDI’s staff by submitting a request for assistance. From there the process may take anywhere from a few weeks to several months of one-on-one meetings, coaching, mentoring, practice pitches before a final presentation to a larger group of local angel investors.
Entrepreneurs and start-ups seeking capital should also consult our Access To Capital section for further details on a wider range of financing options for early stage / growth companies.
