entrepreneurs, as well as educational and social opportunities for members, potential members, and guests.
The SAA has relationships with other angel organizations across the region, and as well as with regional
venture capital firms and other providers of is a member of the Angel Capital Association, a national
organization of angel groups.
Are you an angel?
Angel investors are accredited individuals who invest their own money in (usually) early-stage companies in
return for equity in the company. In addition to providing needed seed funding, an angel may also take an
active role in guiding the entrepreneur, advising the company, taking a seat on the company’s board, or
even joining the company as an executive. An active and effective angel group is a vital component of a
thriving, innovative economy.

Looking for angel capital?
First, determine whether your company is an appropriate candidate for angel investment–the majority of
small businesses in need of capital are not.
An optimal angel deal will have:
- an innovative product (preferably with patentable intellectual property)
- a scalable business model
- a team with a proven track record
- potential for rapid high growth
- potential for a high return on investment
The Spokane Angel Alliance invests primarily in companies based in the Inland Northwest.
Next, ask yourself: “do I really want angel investors?” Remember that you are selling part of your company,
giving up a percentage of control and potential profit.
