WHY JOIN NYA? 

 




Membership in the New York Angels offers investors many advantages. Some of them include:
  • Association with a premier angel group in New York City.
  • Increased deal flow providing exposure to attractive emerging companies across a broad range of industries.
  • Improved deal terms as a result of investing collectively.
  • Introductions and access to New York Angels network of over 100 successful New York City entrepreneurs and business leaders.
  • Opportunity to work as a team to evaluate investment opportunities and learn from each other during Due Diligence.
  • Exceptional monthly meetings with attractive company and distinguished educational presentations.


New York Angels is a Non Stock Corporation and is managed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. The Board supervises a small professional staff. New York Angels is not a fund and does not invest as a group, although NYA sidecar funds occasionally invest alongside individual NYA members given sufficient participation by these members.


Our members collaborate on due diligence and pool their investment funds to create critical mass; but each member makes individual investment decisions and understands that investments in early-stage, privately-held ventures are risky and can be highly illiquid. Typical angel investments can take years before capital is returned, and, in some cases, the company goes out of business and no money is returned.  Serving on corporate boards can also expose an individual to substantial personal liability. Our members understand these risks and exposures and evaluate investments on a case-by-case basis.
