Become An Angel

York Angel Investors is dedicated to providing an excellent experience and service to all our members. We are pleased to offer two membership categories: Individual and Corporate.

Your involvement in the group as an angel investor may range anywhere from very active (Deal Lead, Advisor, Board Member, Consultant) to passive (joining in our deals with investment dollars only). Individual members decide which angel deals they want to participate in. While the sky is often the limit, individuals are usually welcome to participate in deals with as little commitment as $10K. Part of our mandate to our Membership is to provide regular educational seminars so that our Members can build their knowledge, their networks, as well as their investment portfolios.

There are great opportunities in the startup ecosystem, and we are always seeking prospective members who will be actively involved in sourcing, evaluating, funding, and mentoring high-potential companies. Getting an endorsement from a current member is the best way for you to gain membership.

If you are interested in joining York Angel Investors, please start by answering a few questions for us. If you appear to be a good fit, you will be contacted by our staff to discuss the next steps, which may include attending an Investment Meeting, Screening Meeting, or a meeting with someone from our Membership Committee.
