What is COREangels?

COREangels is a network of people who are passionate about helping entrepreneurs launching innovative businesses by professionally investing as a business angel.

How do COREangels work?

COREangels has developed its own group investment model. All business angels in each group invest together in the portfolio. Business angels invest in a group managed by group leaders. Each group has its own investment thesis and autonomy in investing decisions. Group leaders are responsible for screening startups and taking them to the Investment Committee. New investments are approved democratically with the vote of the majority of business angels. Each business angel has 1 vote, regardless of the amount invested.

What is the relationship between the Head Office and each angel group?

COREangels is born glocal, sharing a global brand through vertical and geographical groups of business angels and promoting involvement and long-term commitment with the local ecosystem in each geography. Each angel group is an independent company. The group leaders are responsible for managing this company. COREangels Head Office has an important role in the development of each group, preparing and training new group leaders and defining and guaranteeing governance standards. COREangels supports the leaders in attracting investors, business flow, startup evaluation, besides the benefits of being part of an international network. COREangels also provides branding, website, setup support, administrative support, documentation support, meetings and activities planning support, marketing support, and tools support (CRM, screening, reporting, financial analysis).

What are the benefits of being affiliated with COREangels as a global network?

COREangels supports the growth of professional angel groups and offers individual investors a hurdle less experience, maximizing outcome and diversifying investment while creating the context for them to involve, to contribute, to foster innovation, to self-develop, to network and to enjoy the journey.
