TiE Angels invests in seed and Series A rounds of promising companies in cloud, IoT/IoA, big data, ML/AI, AR/VR, security, enterprise software, networking, mobility hardware/software infrastructure, robotics, consumer, ecommerce, semiconductors, fintech, energy, digital health and medical devices. We have a strong preference for investments in the greater San Francisco area. Companies are selected either for "TiE Angels Showcase dinners" and/or in our more frequent "TiE Angels Startup Presentation dinners". Our investment is typically around $300k, but has ranged from $100k to $1.5M. We do not have a fund and angels make their decisions individually. However, a lead is assigned to every company during due diligence so that entrepreneurs deal with us as a group. To apply for TiE Angels click here and for any general inquiries contact


There are no fees for entrepreneurs to apply or present. If your company gets funded by TiE Angels, please consider making a small stock donation to TiE so we can continue fostering entrepreneurship. 


Our general criteria for investment are:


  • Fast growing markets (not just large markets)

  • Defensible technology

  • Teams with relevant backgrounds

  • Anticipating seed capital or co-invest in series A


The best time to approach TiE Angels for funding consideration is usually after you have sufficiently developed your plan to a point where you can demonstrate validation of the concept and have a team in place. TiE Angels is a forum where you should seek investment—not feedback on an idea. Because of this, we do not allow non-presenting entrepreneurs and other observers at our monthly dinners. TiE offers many other programs to help startups get the coaching needed to get in front of investors.
