Together we invest in Australian startups with high growth potential
Sydney Angels members benefit from the infrastructure we have built over 8 years
Our track record and ecosystem presence make us a popular avenue for raising capital. We see a lot of deals.
An operations manager handles all aspects of our organisation, while alliance partners provide space, catering, IP advice and more..
We use Gust to privately manage applications, deal room discussions and file sharing to ensure that members are all on the same page.
Members receive investment guidelines and training covering deal evaluation, post-investment management and more.
The $10m SASF will co-invest with the syndicate in every company once they have satisfied certain criteria.
Angel investing is a team sport full of risk, adventure and potential reward. All prospective members should share the expectations and beliefs that we've outlined below to ensure that they enjoy their experience with us. The following are only guidelines that we aim for:
We generally build diversified portfolios of early-stage companies to mitigate risk and increase our likelihood of seeing returns
We tend to invest smaller amounts in more companies rather than attempting to pick winners and over-investing in them
We believe good things take time and are prepared to give our companies the investment horizon they need to achieve a strong exit
We look for companies that we believe are capable of delivering 10x returns. Diversification is important because we’re not always right!
As unusual as this may sound, we expect that- despite our best efforts- half of the companies we carefully select will fail, most will produce only minimal returns, and we’ll make our money on the 1-2 that deliver a return of 10x or greater!
We are a membership organisation that screens prospective members just as we would companies applying for investment; we have certain criteria designed to protect both parties from a harmful outcome. We welcome all prospective members to apply using the form below.
You need to be comfortable investing your own personal funds into multiple high risk ventures
You must be careful with sensitive and confidential information that should not be shared publicly
You must have the time and financial ability to participate regularly in our events and investment syndicates
We welcome members of sound character who are willing to adhere to our values, policies and procedures
During a successful applicant's induction, we share all relevant policies, procedures and guidelines to help ensure that they are properly informed about their responsibilities as a member.
The Sydney Angels investment process leverages the time and expertise of its members to help them make better decisions faster. A typical investment cycle, of which we hold 6 per year, is:
DSM: Deal Screening Meeting | MM: Members Meeting | SASF: Sydney Angels Sidecar Fund
