MIT Angels

MIT Alumni Angel Investors Group

The MIT Alumni Angel Investors Group seeks to leverage the power of the MIT alumni network to perform excellent diligence on emerging technology investment opportunities. Membership is open to all MIT affiliates who are 
accredited investors.

The group was founded by Swati Chaturvedi (MS ’04, MBA ’11) and Lisheng Wang (MS ’04) in January 2014. We focus on deep technology startups – companies backed by significant R&D and IP. We host pitch events at least once every quarter. Almost half the companies that are selected to pitch eventually receive an investment.

If you are an MIT affiliate and would like to join the group as an Angel Investor, please sign up here.

If you are a startup and would like to be considered for the next pitch event, please submit your materials here.

We are shortly launching an investor education series consisting of seminars, talks, and panel discussions.
