Austin, Texas provides wonderful opportunities for angel investors to get involved with the start-up community. What makes the Southwest Angel Network unique is that we are one of just a handful of angel networks in the US with a focus on social impact, on doing good, and on making the world a better place. We are a source of positive energy for our angels at a time when the country is filled with divisiveness and negativity.
And we see deal flow from social-impact companies from all across the US, and occasionally from Europe. We show our angels amazing social-good companies.
And while we focus on social impact, we have not lost sight of the goal of making a return for our investors.
Examples of social-impact include improving education and healthcare outcomes, increasing financial empowerment, protecting the environment, and working to improve the lives of groups of people who face unique challenges.
The Southwest Angel Network supports equal access to capital for companies with diverse management teams, and has taken the Startup Diversity and Inclusion Pledge. At the end of 2017, one-half of our investments to date have been in companies led by women or by minorities.
The Southwest Angel Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with an educational mission. We work with Austin social-impact accelerators to educate entrepreneurs on what it means to establish growing and profitable businesses. We educate angels on social-impact investment opportunities.
