I want to introduce you today to an important initiative of the Angel Capital Association that I hope you will join me in supporting.

ACA supports Angel Investors in many ways, some of which you may not be aware of:

  • Education – a comprehensive education program, including Angel University

  • Data Analytics – a growing database resulting in the just-published 2021 Angel Funders Report

  • Public Policy – front-line advocacy for tax-favorable treatment to incentivize our asset class

  • DEI – moving the needle on increasing the number of women in angel investing and now pursuing a multi-prong strategy to increase access to both angels and founders of color

  • Networking and Syndication – allowing angels across the country access to deal flow

Indeed, ACA has served our interest well over the past fifteen years.  But, with our help, it aspires to greatly expand its impact as the steward of angel investing. 

ACA’s new Angel Investor Foundation is in the early stages of its Seed the Future Campaign, as outlined in the Campaign’s ambitious Case for Support.

I believe a gift to this campaign will help angel investors and the entrepreneurs we foster achieve great things and am making a $3,000 challenge gift which I hope you and fellow Hub Angel Group members will help meet.

Your gift to the Angel Investor Foundation is fully tax-deductible.  Please join me in making a year-end gift to the AIF and help Hub Angels become among the ‘early adopters’ of this important effort.

Let’s lead on this!
