While your end goal in visiting this website is to receive funding from Triangle Angel Partners, you should know that a select few companies will end up listed on the PORTFOLIO page. But, even so, we hope you will derive some value in TAP from just one visit to our website, or in submitting your application for funding, or at various points along the funding path. By learning what we require to consider your start-up for an investment, by completing our application on GUST, by making a presentation, receiving feedback, or going to Due Diligence, we hope that you will grow and learn in your journey to success. While there may not be any funding forthcoming from TAP, getting your message out to our network might yield contacts, customers, advisors, or some form of improvement for you and your company.
It’s never too early to make yourself known to angel investors. The decision to invest, much like to get married, should be taken advisedly with plenty of time to consider the opportunity. The longer an angel investor is aware of your start-up, the longer you have to demonstrate your progress, problem-solving ability, and commitment. Having a couple of TAP members with greater knowledge about you and your company will help the rest of the members make a well-advised decision.
Once an investment has been approved, it takes only two business days to fund the investment.
