Why join an investor group? Many companies have investment minimums of $100K-$500K, which is pretty steep for most angel 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, Vegan Investors provides deal syndication opportunities by putting together special purpose vehicles (SPVs) for investments any time we have, in aggregate, investment commitments of $50K or more. The minimum investment size per investor per deal is $5K-$10K. We work with Loon Creek Capital to form the SPVs and the cost is just $500 per investor regardless of the investment amount into any SPV.
To join Vegan Investors, please do the following:

Our Vegan Investor group meets nearly month via Zoom to view company presentations. We will be reviewing companies this summer for our fall showcase in September. Please see the showcase page for more info!
