Idea & Formation
We founded Titan Angels because as a group of Southern California university professors, alumni, and donors we have seen too many great ideas from members of the Southern California university 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.
Titan Angels is a seed fund and many of the investments will be made prior to a Series A round.
The anticipated life span of Titan Angels will be ten years.
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.
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 Southern California university 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.
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.
Become a Titan Angel
Our members are people that look beyond the numbers and have a passion for entrepreneurship. Each of our founding members have all been involved in prior startups.
