Strategic Partnership Opportunities

Become a Strategic Partner

These are essential to the growth of the organization. We need involvement from these “supporters” to help us spread the word about the local Angel Network. They help us find local companies who need early-stage growth seed money to launch their business. The financial support is needed, so we can continue to bring great investment opportunities to the table and provide money, mentorship, and experience to help local businesses on their path to success.

The annual cost for a community partner is as follows:

  • Supporter – $2,500
  • Leader – $5,000
  • Builder – $10,000
  • Strategic – $25,000

As a community partner, we offer several opportunities to thank you for your support.

A colleague invited me to a meeting and then I attended a couple of more meetings to get an idea of how the meetings ran and what the organization was all about. It peeked my interest and I liked the fact that there was this forum that was willing to help out new and up and coming entrepreneurs from both a financial and an experience aspect.
