The Mission of the Great Lakes angels organization is to organize and mentor angels and provide a forum for them to grow in knowledge and wealth and foster more of the same - to help invest in entrepreneurial companies in the region. It will have numerous “deals” presented, high-level content and quality speakers and panelists on key issues of angel investing. Current “Angels” and high net worth “potential Angels” can meet in a confidential and educational environment to discover opportunities for mutual areas of investment. Experts can be identified and shared to assist in due diligence on technologies outside the individual’s own comfort zone and help transition investors into new exciting technologies for growth of companies in the Region and greater personal reward.
The Great Lakes Angels is a nonprofit corporation. We seek serious, active investors only. Attendance is therefore open to those who would intend to make a minimum of a $25,000 investment in one or more companies presented by the Great Lakes Angels in each calendar year. One must be an Accredited Investor or approved as “designated screener” for an Accredited Investor, by the Membership Committee, to be a Member. Our investors consider early stage company equity investments, and later stage company debt, bridge and mezzanine investments. A Screening Committee screens Business Plans and companies for potential investment and for presenting to the group. Annual dues of $1,000 and attendance fees are assessed to help defray the operational costs of the organization.
The GLA will not be providing investment advice, recommendations or guidance. Members who have interest in pursuing investment opportunities with presenting companies will explore these individually with the company after a general presentation. GLA Members will make their own decisions free of any reliance on the GLA, its sponsors or its members. To qualify as a GLA Member, you must be an accredited investor as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Rule 501 of Regulation D.
