-Welcome Entrepreneurs -

Welcome Entrepreneurs:

Ariel Savannah Angel Partners seeks to review and evaluate prospective Angel investment opportunities. Entrepreneurs with solid start-up ideas, new products and/or market expansion plans should apply for a preliminary screening of their business plan. Those who pass the full screening process will be scheduled to make a presentation to the membership who will evaluate the plan and make a decision on the undertaking of a thorough due diligence study of the investment opportunity followed by an investment decision.

The first step in establishing a potential relationship with Ariel Savannah Angel Partners is to e-mail a non-confidential Executive Summary of your business plan to our screening committee.This is done by completing our application process with your identification and short business description. Please click on the application tab under entrepreneurs.

 If your opportunity meets our screening criteria you will be invited to submit a formal application. The application review may generate a request for more information and a screening interview. A limited number of screened companies are invited to make presentations at one of our membership meetings.

Companies whose presentation and clarity of investment opportunity meet the membership interests are evaluated by a member-led due diligence effort. Due Diligence is done using a set of proven criteria and best practices.

The results of the due diligence study will produce a recommendation on our investment interest and develop a term sheet for further negotiation. The membership will vote on the investment recommendation and collectively provide the funding for approved investments.

Ariel Savannah Angel Partners works cooperatively with invested companies to assist them in building and operating a successful business. We will provide opportunities for access to member resources and lend guidance, advice, participation, contacts, knowledge and expertise in support of company needs and requests. We will actively monitor company progress and support the needs for future growth funding and the progression to funding from established sources such as later rounds and/or venture capital firms.

Angel investors tend to be more proactively involved with the companies in which they invest.They often become cooperative partners in assuring the success of the business. Eventually the angel investors will seek an exit strategy moving the company into other funding programs and move the angel investors into supporting other ventures.

Please contact us via e-mail at info@savannahangelpartners.com for further information or to outline the potential of your business investment situation.
