Capital Angels provides a forum and structure for regular and formal meetings with potential companies and entrepreneurs, facilitating information exchange. The members of Capital Angels make individual investment decisions based on their own individual assessment of the opportunity presented. By the very nature of these investments, they are high risk at best.

As an organisation, Capital Angels cannot make and does not make representations as to the suitability of any potential investment nor does Capital Angels as an organisation make investments or investment decisions

Join Capital Angels

Why invest as part of a group? You might think it's to make money, but for many of us it's a way to give back to the community, to help build successful companies and to participate in the satisfaction that comes from this involvement. And we hope to make money.

A Capital Angel seeks investment opportunities that reflect the knowledge powerhouse that is the ACT and region. Opportunities that are associated with the Capital's research institutions and that have a deep IP base are particularly welcome. However, any entreprenuer that views Canberra as its stepping stone to the global marketplace is encouraged to consider taking a Capital Angel along for the journey.
