Welcome to Golden Angels Investors

Golden Angels Investors began in 2002 with the goal of helping capital formation for entrepreneurs in the Midwest. Our members are founders, CEOs, venture capitalists and business leaders. They bring a track record of business success and a deep commitment to assist entrepreneurs in building great companies.

Golden Angels Investors is not a fund; its members make individual investment decisions under terms negotiated with entrepreneurs and the group invests as a single entity. The opportunity assessment and review processes are member-led. In all cases, submissions begin by visiting our Entrepreneurs page.

Golden Angels leads opportunities directly as well as participates in opportunities led by other investors. As the lead investor, we often provide board directors with specific industry expertise and connections to a broad network for business development. We invest across a wide range of industries from healthtech to edtech to B2B services. To learn more about our portfolio companies, visit our Portfolio page.

For investors, we offer a wide array of opportunities for engagement, allowing for each individual to contribute in their own unique way. Our members are active in helping to source deals and in offering their expertise in the diligence process, thereby enhancing our ability to evaluate opportunities across a wide range of industries. To learn more, visit our Membership page.
