Why join an investor group? Many companies have investment minimums of $100K-$500K, which is pretty steep for some investors who are trying to build a diversified portfolio of companies in this asset class (early-stage private companies). In addition to providing support with pipeline, screening and due diligence, we provide deal syndication opportunities by putting together special purpose vehicles (SPVs) for investments any time we have, in aggregate, investment commitments of $50K or more. Minimum investment size per investor per deal is $5K.
To join Vegan Investors, please fill out our membership form HERE. Members come from all over the United States and many other countries as well! In order to share our due diligence reports, you will also need to sign our agreement of understanding. Our due diligence reports cannot be shared with anyone that is not a member of Vegan Investors or any member that does not have a signed copy of this agreement on file with us. Please download and sign here and then email the signed copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. The annual membership fee is $250, but drops to $100 if you make at least one investment in a company that have presented over the previous year! You can make your donation for membership with our Fiscal Sponsor, Next Wave Foundation. Just note “vegan investors” when you donate HERE. Thanks!
Our Vegan Investor group meets nearly month via Zoom to view company presentations. See our virtual meetings page for details about the next event!
Thank you for aligning your investments with your values and helping us create positive change for a more vegan world.
