Who We Are
Archangels Investors is an association of family offices and ultra high net-worth individuals who meet monthly to discuss topics relevant to themselves. The network occasionally invites companies – seeking funding of $5MM or more – to present to its members.

Helping Companies and Family Offices Grow.
Private Capital Network Archangels is a very exclusive group of families who meet in conference and talk about their specific needs with peers.
We are about helping each other, sharing our thoughts, and exploring new opportunities. More importantly, we act as a support network for fellow members should there be an express need, whether it be business or personal.
This group is not open only by invitation from a fellow member. After several interviews, one can be invited to join the ArchAngels.
About Our Network
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
- Peter Drucker
Our meeting engagements last three hours and often host guest speakers from Universities, Investment Banks, Law firms, and CPA firms to educate members on changes in the investment climate. Past speakers have come from Roth Capital, UBS, and BNY Mellon Wealth Management Practices. Law firms such as Byan Cave, Greenberg Traurig, and Wilson Harvey Browndorf have brought speakers discussing changes at the SEC, impact of the Todd Frank Bill, Liabilities of Corporate Directors, EB5 Programs, and much more.
