The group is collaborative and open source, providing a democratic framework with highly filtered deal flow and member training.  Empire Angels, through it’s individual members, typically invests between $50k and $350k in both seed and Series A rounds. EA invests in early stage, capital efficient companies led by dedicated, young founders with a clever solution, large target market and initial user engagement, as well as a clear path to meaningful revenue generation in the next 6-12 months. Empire Angels hosts monthly meetings to hear company presentations before pursuing active discussions. Empire Angels is not a fund and while members collaborate on due diligence, make individual investment decisions.

Empire Angels has the youngest membership of any angel group in the country and is the only organization focused on training the Millennial generation of angel investors.
