The angels at the SWAN Impact Network are bound together by a passion for making the world a better place. We support dynamic startups that are striving to address serious challenges that our society faces. And we expect those companies to deliver measurable social or environmental impact, and to have solid plans for financial success.
Who We Are
SWAN is fastest-growing impact angel network in the US and has chapters in both Austin and Dallas. Our membership includes angels from across the country. And we invest in amazing companies from across the US.
We recognize that women and people of color startup founders have been under-funded by the startup investment community. Half of our investments have gone to these under-represented founders.
