MIT Angels

MIT Alumni Angel Investors Group of Northern California seeks to leverage the power of the MIT alumni network in Silicon Valley to perform deep technical diligence on emerging technology investment opportunities. Membership is limited to all MIT alumni who are accredited investors. Guests may attend if space is available. The events are free to both attendees and pitching companies, and the organization is completely volunteer led.

The group has been in operation since in January 2014 and has provided millions of dollars to startups. 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.  

START-UP PITCH EVENTS

We host pitch events throughout the year. Invitations are emailed to registered accredited investors who are members of the MIT community. 

TO OBTAIN AN INVITE

If you would like an invitation, please register as an accredited investor here or write to us at ronjon@alum.mit.edu or rivelli@ix.netcom.com. Attendance is limited to the MIT community who are accredited investors, and their guests, space limiting.

TO PITCH YOUR COMPANY

If you are a startup and would like to be considered for the next pitch event, please submit your materials here and contact the directors below. Companies go through a screening process, and those selected come to pitch at the MIT Angels event. Companies do not have to have MIT alumni in the management team. However, many do, and often companies fly out from Boston.

TO HELP US ORGANIZE

Although professional, we are a volunteer organization. Volunteers do not need to be accredited investors and participation provides an excellent window into the start up and investing process for those who wish to learn. Contact us below if interested.
