    What others say about AngelPool

AngelPool Syndication Network

Increase Deal Flow or Wrap Up a Portfolio Company Round




For Angel Groups gathering additional capital to complete a seed round or that want to make sure they don't miss any key deals in their region, the AngelPool syndication network provides a convenient webconference meeting every other month for rapid, time efficient sharing of key deals across angel groups within each region. There is never a charge.
    Recent Presenters and Results        Angel Group Members (most but not all syndicate).


A. Instructions for Angel Groups.
We hold meetings every other month in which you can syndicate your deals for other angels and groups to participate in time efficiently. There is no charge of any kind (all volunteers). Just email the company name to newdeals (at) angelpool.org and your deal will be accepted in the following priority order as originally agreed by all participating angel groups:
1. Deals being or just funded by a group.
2. Deals funded within the last year by a group.
3. Probable deals being diligenced by a group.
4. Local startup/venture contest winning companies.
5. Other notable deals within the region.
* Participation is subject to the Agreement below.


B. Instructions for Presenters.
Email the following 3 days before the meeting to newdeals [at] angelpool.org :
1.   Short Presentation (about 5 minutes, Powerpoint or pdf format) and,
2.   Short Executive Summary (if none use this Alternate Form).
        (we will then send you the dial-in info the day before the meeting).

Fees. There are no fees of any kind by AngelPool (all volunteer angel leaders).

Preparation. Webconference times are by region (see Left column). After sending your presentation and summary above, selected companies are given up to 7 minutes (5 minute presentation plus 2 minutes of Q&A). Add your contact info to the last slide. The Powerpoint should NOT contain animation nor videos and to show web pages please screen capture them and paste into your Powerpoint as there is not enough time to do a live demo. The dial-in will be sent directly to the selected companies the day before the meeting. The webconference coordinator will centrally load the Powerpoints a day before.

Meeting Day. There are usually 4-6 presenting companies, 5-10 angel groups listening live, and another 20 angel groups in that region who watch the stored presentation. By default upon joining the call everyone will be muted, when your name is called to present press *6 to unmute your microphone and begin (your deck will be showing at www.angelpool.org/view ). To advance to the next slide say "Next Slide". After presenting be sure to press *6 again to mute yourself to minimize background noise as courtesy to the next presenter.

Post-Meeting. Angel groups in that region then contact the companies they are interested in directly afterward to request in-person meetings to their angel members and/or more info or to negotiate terms of a convertible note or equity investment. We also encourage you to reach out directly to all angel groups near you just in case they missed your presentation on AngelPool (see the dropdown for those nearest you). .   * indicates not a member yet.   Report error
