Why join Southern Angels...
HOME | STARTUPS | INVESTORS | ABOUT US
<aside> 🚀 In 2020, Southern Angels assessed 70 applications, brought 17 to pitch and members invested in 4 startups. We do this work so you don't have to.
<aside> 👩🏫 Members typically see two startups pitch each month. Events are hosted at top-tier firms in Adelaide and are followed by networking drinks with fellow members.
<aside> 📈 Angel investing is high risk and should only represent a small portion of an investor's portfolio. However the growth potential of the startups can be significant and produce 10x+ returns.
<aside> 🦉 Members share their experience and sector expertise so together we grow strong and diversified early-stage investment portfolios.
<aside> 🇦🇺 Southern Angels has over 50 collaboration partner angel groups, VCs and private investors that we share deal flow and co-invest with to sufficiently fund startups.

<aside> 🐝 Each member is building their own portfolio of startup investments. They work collaboratively to share due diligence and the capital risk of early stage investing.
<aside> 🎓 First-hand exposure to assessing early stage startups and exclusive invitations to networks and education. Our events always feature Q&A with experienced angel investors.
<aside> 👔 Southern Angels is a not-for-profit overseen by a board of directors with a strong focus on compliance, diversity and the fair treatment of founders.
