Why Join Citrine Angels?

Our members say prescreening of potential investments is one of the many value-added benefits of joining Citrine Angels. Our Deal Flow Committee members 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, enjoy the benefit of participating in discussion, learning from other members and participating in due diligence as part of their own investment decision making process.
