|Description||Angel Investing Group|
Grape Arbor is an angel investor group comprised of friends who spend their professional lives in the technology and start-up space and pool their personal finances to make angel investments.
Since its founding in 2006, Grape Arbor LLC (directly or through affiliates) has made one or more investments into more than two dozen companies.
Grape Arbor has made investments in advertising/marketing online, web 2.0/social networking, financial services (tech and non-tech), and software/web-enhanced services.
While a number of investments have been into companies with products at the pre-beta stage, Grape Arbor has made one initial investment into a company which, at the time, had roughly $15MM of trailing 12 month revenue.
In general, however, Grape Arbor targets early stage companies with a little revenue (several hundred thousand to several million in trailing 12 month revenue).
All of the companies considered seriously had a clear strategy for attacking a large and rapidly growing addressable market as well as a strong (even if not complete) management team.
Grape Arbor has made investments in which co-investors have been: First Round Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners, Carlyle, Insight Venture Partners, Institutional Venture Partners, Vision Ventures, Khosla Ventures, Venrock, Kodiak Venture Partners and others.
