What makes Vectors Angel group unique?
Our unique offering is threefold: First, we focus specifically on impact and sustainability companies, staying true to our thesis of positive impact and positive returns. Second, unlike many angel groups, our management team conducts a full package of diligence on each company and specifically makes an investment recommendation based on 1-2 months of vetting and research. Other angel groups only introduce companies to angels and allow angels to conduct diligence on their own. Finally, Vectors Angel requires no fee to join, as we want to keep this important space as accessible to investors as possible.

What is a syndicate?
Per the definition on AngelList: "A syndicate is a venture capital fund created to make a single investment. They are led by experienced technology investors, and financed by institutional investors and sophisticated angels."
What is the investment vehicle used for the syndicate?
We are currently using Assure.co (Glassboard), the AngelList back office for the syndicate. The term used is exactly the same as a typical deal on the AngelList website. Management fee ($2500 per deal, $200 reserve expense fee, plus 1.5% of the deal size) goes to the platform (lower than directly through AngelList) with 20% of carry. Assure.co covers all legal costs and manage the syndicate on behalf of the group for 7 years under the arrangement.
Can I meet with other angel investors?
Absolutely. Please join our offline deal brunch, slack channel, and events to meet other like-minded angel investors.
Are there annual membership fees involved with the angel community?
No. We want to encourage angel investors to work with our startup companies, so we are not adding additional bars.
Are there minimum check size requirements?
There is a minimum of $5000 (+ platform fees) investment to participate in the deal.
