“We connected with Gopher Angels through our own local angel syndicate, and it was great having a warm introduction to the group from a qualified investment partner. One of the hardest things for entrepreneurs is to build their network of qualified investor contacts. Gopher Angels makes the process of pitching a wide range of angels very quick and simple. Thanks to Gopher Angels’ diverse investment group, we now have an investor in our deal that has deep experience in our industry. Gopher Angels also connected us with other angel networks, helping us reach investors who were not previously on our radar.”

Life Equals

“As a second time founder, I’ve been connected to Gopher Angels and many of its members for years, and I’ve been impressed with how it has grown and supported some great local companies. When we launched Structural, several members of Gopher Angels encouraged us to present, and we were thrilled to do so. The access to talent, investors, and local businesses that Gopher Angels offers is extraordinary. In the past month alone, I’ve had several introductions, including two to Fortune 500 companies, come through Gopher Angels. The credibility and advice that these connections enable is a real asset to our young company.”
