Band of Angels
San Francisco, California
The Band of Angels is a formal group of more than 130 former and current high tech executives who are interested in investing their time and money into new, cutting edge, startup companies. Since 1994, Band members have seeded 225 companies, with 50+ profitable M&A exits and 9 Nasdaq IPOs. Band members have founded companies such as Symantec, Logitech, and National Semiconductor and been senior executives at the likes of Sun Microsystems, Hewlett Packard, and Intuit. The group has invested more than $208 million. The group invests in the range of $300k to $750k, but often leads a syndication of $2-3M. Generally the group expects to own a third of the company for a $1M investment. The Band invests across all high technology categories, with the majority of these investments made in the seed or early round (Series A or B). The group also operates The Band of Angels Fund, LP, a $50M venture fund comprised exclusively of institutional partners. The fund co-invests exclusively in deals that are subscribed to by members of the Band of Angels. In 2009 the Band raised a 3rd side fund, called Acorn Fund, which caters to 'scrappy entrepreneurs who need just a little bit of capital.'
