Startup Healthcare companies that apply typically are seeking a Seed round or Series A Funding.
Companies interested in applying to Venture-Med Angels should download the application, then send in the completed  application and executive summary by email or fax.

Screening

Applications are screened for a proper fit and maturity.  We prefer to evaluate early stage companies that have IP, a strong team, and domain expertise. We select 2 companies to present to our group monthly. We focus on companies that have the highest probability of delivering the rule of 3: Less than $3M total invested, returns in less than 3 yrs and an ROI greater than 3X.

Companies that pass screening will be invited to present.

Startup Presentation Meeting (Free to present)

The presentations are 10 min long (15 slides or less), followed by a 10 min Q&A session. Please make sure that you follow the time frame accurately.  We do not want to run overtime on our event.

Investor Analysis Conference Calls

The week following the recorded event, one or two investor conference calls are hosted to allow sharing of opinion in order to arrive at a decision on the opportunity.  These conference calls may occur at any time when an accredited investor is interested in more information.

Review of Corporate Documents

Every startup company is provided with a copy of our Due Diligence Guide.  Please follow this guide to have all documents ready to review.  We will place these into a drop box and release them upon your approval to accredited investors.

Site Visit

It is recommended that investors perform a site visit on all companies they are interested in investing. Please be prepared to provide a site visit at your facility or other another professional site of a partner.

Term Sheets are Negotiated

After determining the buy in for each investor, the term sheet is negotiated.  This may be a convertible note or equity deal depending on the stage of the company.  Seed rounds are typically convertible notes, where series A rounds are equity.  The longer the Angels can stay away from VC money, the better the potential returns.  It is in the best interest of the group to properly fund each deal in order to keep the CEO satisfied and distanced from the VC interest. It is also very important to have the company fully funded.  These negotiations should be done between your attorney, in reviewing term sheets and modifications.
