Investment Criteria

Dashing Angels invests in early stage and start up companies with the potential to rapidly scale into market leadership. This implies potential for high growth, a strong market position, and a sustainable advantage. Specifically, we look for:

  • A market opportunity sufficiently large to create a business with at least $5 to $50 million in annual revenues in a few years.
  • A compelling, well-articulated strategy for capturing and defending a significant market share.
  • Proprietary technology or other strong barriers to entry.
  • Strong management (not necessarily a complete team) with successful experience.
  • An exit strategy for the investors.
  • A desire for advice and coaching.
Lastly, the company valuation must fit within our risk/reward expectations for the investment.

Use of Funds

We look for situations where the capital sought (typically $100,000-200,000, more or less) will take the company to the next level, and materially increase its valuation. A company must be able to demonstrate how it will use our investment to complete at least some of the following:

  • Proof of concept
  • Prototype of its product or technology
  • Product development
  • Product launch
  • Major contract or customers
  • Management team

Decision Process

We are small and are able to move very quickly after being provided a comprehensive packet of information. Ideally, everything should be submitted via email or access to intranet.

Submitting a Proposal

Dashing Angels does not pay finders, or similar fees to any person or entity in any way in connection with investments made by its members and has not authorized any individual or entity, other than its members, to act on its behalf in soliciting investment opportunities

To be considered for our review, please email us an executive summary and/or PowerPoint presentation.

Do not include confidential information. Dashing Angels does not sign Non-Disclosure Agreements for initial proposals. If there is sufficient interest, an NDA may be negotiated at a later time.
