The Sand Hill Angels is a group of successful Silicon Valley technology professionals dedicated to the formation and growth of startup companies.
The key distinctions of Sand Hill Angels are our professional and well defined process, our open approach to working with others in the startup financing ecosystem, our investor-only membership, and our investments are made as a single legal entity.
Our experience spans all aspects of growing successful companies from the formative stage through management of multi-billion dollar enterprises. The group looks to leverage its domain experience and competencies through careful investing in promising technology startups and by providing its portfolio companies with outstanding coaching in marketing, business development, operations, finance, engineering and management.
We invest in private companies at all stages and favor investments in the Internet, Information Technology, and Life Sciences. In Information Technology, we are particularly active in Semiconductors, Software, Storage, and Communications. In the Life Sciences, our interests primarily include medical devices and diagnostics.
Our operating model is to work collaboratively with Venture Capital firms and other Bay Area Angel organizations to lend early stage capital and guidance so that a startup may accomplish the critical milestones necessary to achieve its next stage growth and financing objectives. Sand Hill Angels often syndicates with traditional venture investors and other organized angel groups, providing the entrepreneur with financing discussions leverage.
We either invest as part of a seed or Series A round or we will invest in a discounted convertible note that will convert in an upcoming financing round.
