How York Angels Invest in Companies

The primary goal of any angel investor is return on investment. At York Angels we are typically focused on investing in early stage technology companies with valuations of $5 million or less. We also have a preference for companies that are working with their initial customers to determine use cases and/or product market fit. Preference will be given to companies that have demonstrated that founder/friends/family capital has been extensively deployed to bring the product or service to, or very nearly to its first revenue customers. The company has not likely undertaken a capital raise beyond this insider group.
