Building Growth Ventures
The search for capital—particularly once “friends and family” contribution is exhausted and before venture capital is usually appropriate—can be daunting for today’s entrepreneur. QCA simplifies this difficult task.
Our members meet periodically to review those executive summaries of business plans QCA receives via C-Cap. A next step may include reviewing a complete business plan, meeting with company principals, or requesting a more formal presentation at an Angels’ meeting to evaluate the investment opportunity.
Members may collectively screen and investigate a venture, but Angels make investment decisions individually. If a deal attracts interest, members will work through a due diligence phase and negotiations with the applicant.
We specifically look for:
Our process of screening, presentation, and due diligence can be of value to any venture we investigate, including those which are ultimately not funded.
*Ventures whose capital needs are under $200,000 should contact the Queen City Angels First Fund. See www.qcafirstfund.com for details.
