CAF’s strength lies in its members – a group of highly successful men and women, residing or having interest in the greater Charlotte Region.  The membership represents a variety of professional experiences and include those having direct experience in high growth industries and technologies. 


Active Members

All members are encouraged to actively participate in the investment process, attending screening and monthly member presentations, making personal add-on investments as individually desired, and responding to Fund Executive requests for special expertise or input as he and members conduct due diligence on prospects and assist CAF’s portfolio companies.  It is understood that availability to participate may vary by member over the life of the fund and that some members will be more active than others.



It is anticipated that “advisors” with venture capital experience will be selected to assist with information regarding trends and opportunities in their industry.  This knowledge is valuable since venture funds are candidates to provide follow-on capital in the investment continuum.



Monthly member meetings and due diligence screenings are held at HQ Charlotte. 

222 S Church St, Charlotte, NC 28202
