Join the fastest growing female-focused angel investing group in the Washington, DC area. Enjoy exclusive access to early-stage investment opportunities as well as education and training for investors of every level. It's so easy to get started!
Please join us!
Most individual investors don't have the time or inclination to source deals themselves. Our team sources potential investments from the DC metro area as well as other areas in the region, including Richmond, Norfolk, Baltimore, Wilmington and Philadelphia. Our geographic focus makes it possible for our members to meet founders in person, which is why we limit our geographical reach accordingly.
Why Join Citrine Angels?
Our members say that prescreening of potential investments is one of the many value-added benefits of joining Citrine Angels. Our executive committee members will preview pitches and narrow the field to those who are most investment-worthy to present to the group at one of our monthly meetings. Members enjoy a curated selection of vetted investment opportunities.
We believe group discussions among potential investors with a variety of backgrounds improves the decision-making process for both fledgling and experienced investors
Flexible Investment Amount
As a group, we have a greater ability to meet a founder’s minimum investment threshold, enabling members to make smaller investments than may be feasible otherwise
Our monthly meetings and additional education sessions provide many occasions to meet like-minded women. In addition, our private online membership portal facilitates communication among members
BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
Access to female-founded businesses from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region
Investor education is integral to our mission. Our Angel Investing 101 session provides a general introduction, and subject matter experts teach workshops to our members on topics relevant to early stage investing in more depth, including:
Investment Term Sheets and Legal Agreements
Understanding Financial Statements
How to Evaluate a Company's Team
Due Diligence Basics
Portfolio Strategy for Investors
We will not publicize your involvement. If you would like to disclose your affiliation with the group, that is your choice.
Accordingly, our visitor/guest policy is that all Citrine Angels meetings are Members Only, with limited exceptions for certain education session instructors. As a new group, we will not be having any non-member visitors or guests in 2019. In 2020, we may institute a limited guest policy for serious, vetted prospective members to attend a membership meeting on a trial basis.
