Our Manifesto

We love entrepreneurship. And we want to make the difference supporting and being part of the startup revolution as Business Angels. We are not venture capitalists. Our approach is closer and earlier, when you look for more than just money. Always on entrepreneur side, we are together to address markets, raise capital and achieve exits.

Yes, liquidity is important for everyone in the game, not just for the later investors. We work on that professionally, with seasoned team, proven methodologies and smart tools. And we are here to build something global, leveraging the local trust and diversity. We will reshape the angel industry.

Reshaping the business angel industry

Co-creation of value with the entrepreneur in a shared adventure. No one else, from the initial investment stage, has this mission as clear as business angels. COREangels leverages it with its greatest purpose: the professionalization of angel investment.
