Become an Advisor

Currently, the angel network is actively seeking diverse Advisors (women and people of color) as we work together to address significant societal challenges, although that is not a requirement for new Advisors,

The benefits of being an Advisor include:

  • Advisors have the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of young social-impact start-up companies located in Austin and in the rest of the country.
  • Advisors get to meet and build relationships with impact start-ups, and Austin impact investors and advisors.
  • Advisors get to learn about early-stage companies and early-stage investing.

Advising activities include:

  • Assisting in the down-selection process that identifies the companies that will present at the quarterly pitch events.
  • Attending and participating in the quarterly pitch events
  • Assisting in due-diligence for companies late in the funding evaluation process
  • Optionally coaching companies in your area of expertise

Notes:

  • There is no cost to become an Advisor.
  • The number of Advisor positions is limited.
  • Maintaining Advisor status requires on-going, active participation as an Advisor as described in the Advisor Application.
