This is the largest gathering of angel investors in the world –
and you can’t afford to miss it
Angel investors change the world, one company at a time.
Angels inject capital into startup companies at the earliest stages, in exchange for ownership equity or convertible securities. These investors provide more than just funding, though – they’re focused on mentoring entrepreneurs as their companies take their first steps, establish their market strategies, and hire their first leadership teams. Angel support is invaluable to the startup ecosystem, fostering innovation and economic growth in communities all over the world. Learn more about the basics of angel investing here.

ACA 2020 - The Summit of Angel Investing Isn’t an Event – It’s an Experience
Angel investors make difficult decisions using imperfect information. It’s a risky style of investing, but the returns can be rewarding – if you have access to good deal flow, paired with the knowledge to help you make smart decisions.
ACA 2020 - The Summit of Angel Investing is where connections are made, and opportunities are discovered. The conference features dozens of sessions, led by real-world experts, covering topics that matter:
- Established investment approaches and smart selection practices
- Avoiding common and not-so-common early stage investing mistakes
- Knowing when to say “yes” to a promising deal
- Recognizing realistic exit strategies
- Increasing deal flow and diversifying your portfolio
- Using tax incentives to keep more of your money
- An all-new ACA Angel University at the 2020 Summit on May 11-12 with a focused track introducing the fundamentals of angel investing, due diligence, and valuation (separate registration required)
