CAN hosts investment dinners in Charlottesville for its members and guests on 3rd Mondays (except August and December). Since formation in early 2015, As of January 2017, CAN has invested nearly $3MM in more than 20 deals and grown to ~50 investor members, including 3 family offices. We are not a fund, rather, individual angels make their own investment decision in each deal.
CAN uses an online angel group platform called Gust.com, which is the mechanism entrepreneurs use to apply to CAN for funding.
Entrepreneurs complete their company profile on Gust.com (click to access CAN’s application for funding. They then select and invite CAN to view their deal on Gust.
CAN does have a deference for local companies; however, our group is somewhat agnostic to region. Local entrepreneurs certainly have an advantage and ties to the area are helpful to an entrepreneur applying for funding.
NOTE: On your application, you are encouraged to list ALL of the people within CAN and Charlottesville who have referred you to apply to CAN. It’s also helpful to share names of any local investors you may have already. If those investors are in our group, it can be very beneficial.
CAN has a screening committee comprised of its members. The volunteer team meets monthly to review applications in the hopper. Many deals are screened out early on, though many more are looked at very closely. Only 3 are selected to present to CAN members each month.
Qualifying angel member prospects are encouraged to contact membership chair Mr. John McCray at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about joining CAN.
