"...With our new initiative, investors can now tap into this wealth of experience, members of other angel networks can diversify their portfolio, and new or prospective angels can try out their wings.” ~ Sergio Gurrieri, president, TCA San Diego network
IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) July 26, 2017
Tech Coast Angels (TCA), one of the largest and most active angel networks in the world, recently announced a new initiative that shares TCA deals with accredited investors all across the United States. A subset of the angel network’s best deals will now be syndicated over the online investment platform AngelList.
Private investors throughout the United States now have the opportunity to experience what it’s like to invest alongside seasoned angel investors. The new initiative also benefits entrepreneurs who want more capital and accessibility to a wider world of funding.
“Tech Coast Angels screens several hundred startups every year and we have over 300 members--all of whom have diverse, unique backgrounds and expertise and greatly contribute to due diligence effort of the companies in which we choose to invest,” said Sergio Gurrieri, president of Tech Coast Angels’ San Diego network and lead of TCA’s AngelList Syndicate. “With our new initiative, investors can now tap into this wealth of experience, members of other angel networks can diversify their portfolio, and new or prospective angels can try out their wings.”
The addition of AngelList to TCA’s investment portfolio not only allows the angel network to share some of its best deals with more investors, regardless of geography, but also showcases TCA’s commitment to innovation and best practices.
“While it’s important to stress that this is not a substitute for TCA membership, our AngelList initiative offers great benefits to members and non-members alike, and once again positions us as a private capital thought leader; exploring and adopting new technologies and platforms to find–and fund--great companies,” said Jeff Draa, Tech Coast Angels’ chairman.
AngelList registrants can join TCA’s syndicate page on AngelList, receiving access to regular notifications for each deal the angel network shares on the platform. To register, an investor must create a profile on AngelList (https://angel.co), and then back Tech Coast Angel’s syndicate page on the investment platform (https://angel.co/tech-coast-angels/syndicate).
