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.

Membership is $350 for up to 2 people per firm/family. Please use this link to donate to our fiscal sponsor Next Wave Foundation and put Vegan Investors in the memo line: http://nextwavefoundation.org/donate
We have partnered with Vevolution and maintain our community page there. Our deal flow, diligence, and communications run through that platform.
Here is a great resource page with investor education resources if you are just getting started with early-stage investing.
