Tech Coast Angels (“TCA”), the largest angel investor group in the United States, has been fueling the growth of innovative companies and entrepreneurs in Southern California since 1997. TCA identifies, mentors and funds early stage companies where TCA members devote their time, expertise and capital to help companies grow and succeed. TCA members consist of experienced CEOs, senior executives, current and former entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other professionals. Members not only invest their own money but frequently serve on boards and assist companies with relationships, strategy, supply chain, team building and additional fundraising. TCA has an outstanding deal flow of opportunities and a simplified yet organized process for screening and completing due diligence.
TCA consists of five regional networks (or chapters) in Southern California: Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Central Coast, and the Inland Empire. Each network holds screening sessions, normally semi-monthly, where “pre-screened” entrepreneurs present their company and investment opportunity to the TCA membership.
TCA has been a catalyst in building Southern California’s economy into a thriving center of technology and entrepreneurship. Its relationships with major colleges and universities in Southern California provide both access to potential commercialization opportunities and to expertise that is invaluable to analyze potential investments.
