The Bellingham Angels are a group of accredited investors dedicated to providing equity capital to early and mid-stage entrepreneurial companies. Our primary focusbham is on companies based in the Pacific Northwest, with emphasis on those companies located in the Whatcom, Skagit and Island Counties of Washington State.
Our members are independent business owners and senior corporate executives experienced in financing and developing emerging enterprises. Members have a range of business, industry, and investing experience, but share the desire to engage in the high-risk, high-return potential practice of “angel investing.” We mentor and coach the entrepreneurs in whom we invest, sometimes serve on their boards, provide contacts and assist with team building, strategic planning and fundraising.
We review and screen company business plans on a regular basis and select three to four companies to make a 15-minute presentation to our members during our scheduled bi-monthly member meetings. The angels may collaborate on due diligence, but make individual investment decisions; we do not have a fund and do not necessarily invest as a group.
