Dingman Center Angels

The Dingman Center Angels is a Maryland based angel investment group that provides funding to early-stage companies located within the Mid-Atlantic region. Our members are entrepreneurs, CXO’s, venture capitalists and business leaders who have founded, funded and built world-class companies. We come from a wide array of industry expertise and in association with the Dingman Center of Entrepreneurship, create an extensive entrepreneurial community.

We are looking for innovative, technology-driven startup companies addressing a significant market opportunity where our investment and expertise can make a difference. We introduce entrepreneurs to potential investors through presentations at monthly meetings which are held from September to June.

Our group looks to invests $100,000 to $1,000,000 in seed/early stage companies, and will often syndicate with other angel groups and VC’s for deals up to $2 million. The Dingman Center Angels is not a fund and does not invest as a group. Our members collaborate on due diligence but make individual investment decisions. Each member makes their own thorough review of all information, including speaking with representatives of the company.
