iAngels, the angel investing network that grants private investors access to exclusive early-stage Israeli technology companies alongside leading angels and venture funds, announced today that it will invest in NFX Guild’s Winter 2016 class of handpicked companies. With this announcement, iAngels’ investment community members can each participate by investing a minimum of $50,000 into this unique portfolio of companies through http://www.iangels.co
Choosing iAngels as its co-investor was an easy choice for NFX. “iAngels has a network of investors who appreciate early-stage deals and quickly close funding rounds,” said Gigi Levy-Weiss, one of Israel’s most successful angel investors. “Our accelerator prepares entrepreneurs to make the most of this funding opportunity so that once they graduate from the accelerator they are better positioned for a more significant round at iAngels and other VC groups.”
“One of iAngels unique differentiators is the ability to provide our investor community worldwide unparalleled access to some of the most exclusive investment opportunities in the world” said Mor Assia, Founding Partners at iAngels. “Investing with the NFX Guild in the stellar class of winter 2016 is a prime example”.
NFX Guild, founded by American and Israeli industry veterans James Currier, Stan Chudnovsky, and Gigi Levy-Weiss, is a by-invitation-only accelerator for digital networks and marketplaces focused on building the next generation of unicorns. NFX Guild runs a prestigious three-month program in the Bay Area twice per year for 15-20 companies, with Silicon Valley and Israeli entrepreneurs working side-by-side.
“After two years of bringing Israel’s exclusive early-stage deal flow to our global investment community, our investors will now gain access to a diversified and prestigious portfolio of Israeli and US early-stage technology companies that have passed through a rigorous screening process and received mentorship from some of the most respected entrepreneurs and investors in the world,” added Shelly Hod Moyal, Founding Partner at iAngels.
iAngels continues to expand as it approaches its second year anniversary with 15 employees and 25 investments in its portfolio. The company has enjoyed two exits to date, and has recently announced a $15 million strategic alliance with The Thorney Group in Australia.
