For Angels

If you are an angel investor who is a UC Berkeley alum or current or former faculty member with a passion for the UC Berkeley community, you may wish to consider becoming involved with the Berkeley Angel Network.

Criteria for membership and participation in pitch meetings:

  1. You are a UC Berkeley alumnus/a or current or former faculty member; and
  2. You are an accredited investor, as defined in SEC Regulation D, Rule 501, and

These are also the criteria for membership in our Linkedin group. When attending pitch meetings, you will be asked to complete and agree to the terms of the Accredited Investor Qualification Questionnaire.


Although we currently do not charge a membership fee, we anticipate doing so in the future. The Berkeley Angel Network reserves the right to require in its discretion other or additional criteria for membership and/or participation in pitch meetings.

All investments in entrepreneurial companies involve a high degree of risk, and investors should be able to bear the risk of complete financial loss. It is important that you understand that you, and not the Berkeley Angel Network or its members, will be responsible for your own investment decisions in connection with any companies introduced through the Berkeley Angel Network.
