STARTUPS

To apply for funding: Send your non-confidential pitch deck to submissions@ncet2.org. Submissions reviewed weekly.

Reviews:  Companies undergo an extensive review and vetting by professionals who possess high levels of expertise in specific domains, technology and investment tools.  Passing the multi-level review helps ensure that the company will be attractive to highly qualified investors.  As such, all companies that receive an invitation to participate in a National Angels (USA) meeting or participate in another activity must meet high standards.

Preparation to Participate:  After completing its final review and at its sole discretion, the National Angels (USA) may provide a formal written invitation to the company to participate in a presentation meeting, special event, or other program. These companies are carefully vetted as strong candidates for presentation.

Invitation Process:  To ensure that candidate companies are sufficiently prepared and of high interest to the National Angels (USA), all candidate companies participate in a multi-step process of review, evaluation, and coaching.  Only candidates that successfully pass these steps may receive an invitation to participate and provide company information at a meeting, or to participate in other programs and workshops.

If the National Angels (USA) extends an invitation to the company to participate in a meeting, special event, or other program, the company must submit a complete slide deck- limited to ten (10) page - describing the company’s business, structure, team, and investment strategy.  

Qualifying companies must meet specific criteria, shown below:

  • Sustainable organic growth
  • Solid operations and stellar reputation
  • Huge and/or growing market demand for company products and solutions
  • Multiple proprietary relationships with defacto leaders in high-growth markets
  • Strong leadership from management, backers, and advisors who can assist in business development, partnerships, markets, and operational areas, and
  • Near term exits with at least 3x to 5x financial returns

To maintain the highest levels of candidates for participation, the National Angels (USA) carefully screens and vets all companies.   Each company must have a compelling potential of high-growth and a superior investor-focused presentation to attract participation of our members and affiliates.
