Investors' Circle is Going Beyond The Pitch!

Jul 2, 2013 11:00 AM ET


Last year, the IC network invested over $12MM and was ranked the 7th most active angel network by the HALO Report. Our investment momentum comes thanks to our active membership, engagement with high-quality entrepreneurs, and growing local network initiative -- led by our first local network in Philadelphia. IC Philadelphia members have invested over $1.5MM, pledged an additional $500K to support locally-incubated impact enterprises, and paved the way for new local networks. Next up: San Francisco and New York City!
It's not just our local network strategy that is expanding to better serve our growing network. We've listened to the market and are ready share a sneak peak of IC events that create more opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs to engage around impact. We look forward to seeing you around the country in 2013 and 2014.


Impact Investors: Our newest local networks will allow for added in-person networking and deal review for IC members and impact investors in the San Francisco Bay and New York metro areas. IC SF and IC NYC join IC's pioneering local networks in Philadelphia and North Carolina.

Engage monthly with other investors and impact entrepreneurs while supporting your local impact marketplace. Your access to IC local meetings and our global network allows you to leverage IC's deep expertise, extensive and expansive resources, and local tools to support and scale promising impact enterprises in your region.

Impact Entrepreneurs : IC SF, NYC, Philly, and NC provide monthly opportunities for high-growth, high-impact enterprises to pitch to local investors and gain access to the IC community. Review our criteria and process and apply here to be invited to present at a future local meeting.

More Investors + More Enterprises + More Opportunities for Engagement = More Impact!

Thanks to a great turnout of impact investors and high-quality impact enterprises, our Spring 2013 Venture Fair & Forum in San Francisco was a success! With over half of our presenting companies already receiving investment commitments, we know that these opportunities to connect, engage, and build relationships in-person are the building blocks for scaling the innovations and enterprises we need most. We've listened to our network and to the marketplace, and we are excited to share that we will now be offering more events to serve more investors, support more entrepreneurs, and create more opportunities for impact.

We're coming to you! With more events on our roster, we will be able to better reach investors and entrepreneurs around the US, starting in 2013 and 2014:
