Band of Angels, www.bandangels.com
The Band of Angels is Silicon Valley's oldest seed funding organization. We are a formal group of more than 120 former and current high tech executives who are interested in investing their time and money into new, cutting edge, startup companies. We've seeded over 200 companies in our history with 40+ profitable M&A exits and 9 Nasdaq IPOs. Band members have founded companies such as Symantec, Logitech, and National Semiconductor and been senior executives at the likes of Sun Microsystems, Hewlett Packard, and Intuit.
The Band meets monthly to formally consider three startups selected from among the more than 50 that are screened each month by the Band Deal Selection Process. Entrepreneurs can expect a thorough examination and, occasionally, an investment from some of Silicon Valley's most accomplished entrepreneurs.
