Idea & Formation

Our Founding

We founded Titan Angels because as a group of California State University, Fullerton professors, alumni, and donors we have seen too many great ideas from members of the Cal State Fullerton community fail to get off the ground. However, these failures weren't due to a lack of skills or drive; we believe that the missing ingredient has been a lack of funding.

Investment Goals

Titan Angels is a seed fund and many of the investments will be made prior to a Series A round.

Anticipated Schedule

The anticipated life span of Titan Angels will be ten years.

Investment Process

Any member of Titan Angels can "refer in" a potential deal and hear an initial "pitch". We will have an expanded "pitch panel" of investors to do the first filtering of ideas. If a startup receives a positive review from the "pitch panel" then the vetting process will begin and an investment in said startup will be considered by the Titan Angels Investment Committee.

Fund Operations

In keeping with our spirit, the fund will operate in as lean a method as possible. With assistance from outside legal counsel, the manager of the fund will maintain the books and records of the group as well as file any and all reporting necessary.

Sources of Deals

We draw from the network of our investors that have deep roots within the Cal State Fullerton community. The founding members of Titan Angels have strong connections with the students, professors, and alumni who are launching businesses and with the broader SoCal startup community.

Ongoing Management

Titan Angels will continue to monitor and advise its portfolio companies until they have an exit. Members are invited to attend a monthly meeting where administrative matters are discussed, portfolio companies will give updates, potential investment pitches will be fielded, and quarterly portfolio updates are delivered.

Due Diligence Process

Screening

Titan Angels receives an impressive amount of deal flow from a variety of sources. Every submission is screened by the Manager and/or other members as designated. Companies who pass this screen proceed to a meeting with the Manager and/or other members of Titan Angels with the goal being to decide whether to ask that company to pitch at an upcoming monthly meeting for Titan Angels.

Investor Pitch

Companies that are asked to pitch at the monthly meeting for Titan Angels will give their investor pitch and field questions from Titan Angels members. After the pitch, Titan Angels members decide whether to pass on the investment, hold off for now, or follow up with more due diligence.

Due Diligence

Once a company enters the due diligence stage with Titan Angels there will be at least one more meeting with one or more of the members of Titan Angels. Once the due diligence process has completed the members who conducted the additional due diligence will update Titan Angels members at large and the group will make their investment decision.

Through its Titan Angels I fund; investments have ranged from $5,000 and $50,000. As of the formation of Titan Angels II the same range of investment amounts is expected to be maintained.
