Our membership consists of men and women with an interest in angel investing who enjoy being actively involved in our process.

CAF is a committed capital fund.  This means that a member must invest a certain amount to buy into the fund. In addition members have the option of making additional non-fund dilutive investments in invested companies.  This add-on option allow members the ability to participate more fully in companies/industries that they have experience or more direct interest in.

CAF is a member managed group, where each member is afforded a vote on all activities of the fund.  Based on this model and desire of the fund to grow and operate properly the active participation by each member is strongly encouraged, but more importantly necessary. Being a member provides opportunities to participate throughout the investment process, including:

  • Sourcing deals

  • Screening potential portfolio companies

  • Monthly meetings with company presentations

  • Due diligence efforts

  • Board service

  • Mentoring entrepreneurs

Among the benefits that members receive via participation in the fund are:

  • Opportunity for attractive return on investment
  • Access to deal flow
  • Opportunity to invest additional capital (beyond fund participation) in deals of particular interest to that member
  • Awareness and education on topics relevant to angel investors
  • Networking with like-minded individuals

Individuals who may be interested in membership are encouraged to learn more by attending one or more of our monthly meetings as a guest. If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity please contact our Administrator, Greg Brown, at 980-307-0754 or gbrown@cardinalfinance.net.

CAF is a great way to keep your pulse on innovation across sectors, support entrepreneurship in your backyard. and collaborate with other investors to find solid investments with a lot less hassle than trying to invest in these small companies on your own.
