2023 Presenting Companies

Stand out among Angel Group leaders, ignite innovation. 

ACA invites investors and other supporters to nominate promising, innovative companies and their founders. Our goal is to provide these companies with national and international visibility that leads directly to meaningful financial and non-financial support before, during and after the ACA Summit. 

  • Stage of Development: Currently raising Pre-Seed to Series B rounds. 

  • Industry: Any sector with large, high-growth opportunity. Although sector interest varies depending on investor thesis. 

  • Syndication: Companies must be willing to accept funding from a broad and diverse geographic base consisting of multiple angel groups and/or accredited investors.

ACA’s Innovation Funders Showcase (IFS) is like no other. This is not your traditional pitch event. Investors are in attendance not only to make personal investment decisions, but also to bring the next hot commodity back to their home angel group for further investment consideration. Groups regularly report that they have received IFS exposure and continue to receive screening invites from ACA member groups months after their initial pitch. ACA offers an incredibly efficient and economical path to capital that can pay dividends for months following the presentation. 

How it Works.  

Selected companies that have been nominated will present a member-coached pitch to investors attending the event. Each company will be given a two-minute plenary presentation, which is intended to provide a high-level overview and capture the interest of the audience. The Showcase features more than 30 presenting companies with the top three selected by a panel of judges to go on to a final round. This round will be opened to all Summit attendees as well as all ACA members.
