What is Gopher Angels?

Gopher Angels is an angel investor network with 80 accredited investors in the group. Each investor makes independent investment decisions but also works collaboratively together with other members on any deals of mutual interest.

What are the requirements for joining?

  • Third party verification of a prospective member as an accredited investor
  • A commitment to invest $50,000 within two years
  • Sign a membership agreement
  • An annual fee

Why should you be interested in joining?

  • Members have the benefit of working collaboratively with other investors to make better investment decisions
  • Investors make their own investment decisions rather than relying on a fund’s investment committee to make those decisions
  • The benefit of aggregating investors’ dollars to make a real impact for the startup. It also allows Gopher Angels to often negotiate better terms because the amount being invested is greater than if it were a single individual investor
  • A steady quality deal flow
  • Gopher Angels works with other angel groups and funds across the Midwest to share deals, share diligence, and co-invest
