The 37 Angels network is providing an excellent opportunity to support entrepreneurs and enable them to grow their businesses. As a new angel investor, I am learning how to evaluate companies and track my investments. Interacting with entrepreneurs and investors through the pitch forums and related events is fun. Thanks to 37 Angels, I am always evaluating what will potentially make a good investment!

Several years ago, I was looking for a way to re-engage with the business world and reactivate the left side of my brain when a friend introduced me to 37 Angels. The bootcamp definitely sparked latent quantitative activity which I have continued to exercise through deep dives on cap tables and participating on diligence teams. This coupled with pitch forums and accelerator demo days where extraordinary entrepreneurs entertain my visual and intuitive senses have me thinking on all cylinders. It's invigorating! I only wish I had more time to spend with the amazing women who make up 37 Angels.

The 37 Angels boot camp is the best platform I found to launch myself into the world of early-stage investing. Before joining 37 Angels, I investigated the education opportunities at other angel groups and 37 Angels was the only group to provide an intensive two-day small group immersion. Angela and her team are well plugged into the startup industry. Through the network, I have attended accelerator demo days with 37 Angels mentors and a deep dive on cap tables. 37 Angels gives you access to so many events and opportunities- all for you to enjoy!

Being part of 37 Angels has been a tremendous learning experience. I’ve truly enjoyed learning about different industries other than the one I am in. It’s been wonderful to be able to tap into a well of knowledge from mentors and other members of the group – who made it possible for me to due diligence startups who operate in areas outside of my expertise.

I felt like I hit the jackpot when I learned about the 37 Angels bootcamp. It combined everything I needed right in that moment of my career and life – knowledge about angel investing, networking with other professional women, and doing it in a small, intimate setting. Angela is a true teacher and did a great job presenting the information. I felt safe asking dumb questions (I had plenty) and it has helped create the foundational understanding of the startup/VC ecosystem that I was missing.

37 Angels provides an opportunity for experienced and new angel investors to stay in touch and keep up to date with early stage investing trends and market. It has been very useful to attend social events with like-minded people and exchange ideas with other angles. The bootcamp ensures that every angel, even if new to the space, has the basic level of understanding and proficiency in analyzing an investment proposal which makes all interactions and idea sharing useful and productive.

Six of my partners and I traveled down from Boston for 37 Angels’ two day bootcamp. We mastered valuation, cap tables, market evaluation, competitive positioning, and made two immediate investments as a result of the pitch session. Plus we had fun while doing it! I highly recommend 37 Angels’ bootcamp to anyone interested in the world of angel investing, you will not be disappointed.

The 37 Angels bootcamp provided me with the necessary background knowledge that I needed in order to make savvy investments in early stage companies. They provided training, chats with industry professionals, and introductions to early stage companies that were looking for funding. The team behind 37 Angels are available at all times if you need help or have follow up questions. It has been a great experience for me!

The 37 Angels bootcamp was the beginning of what I can tell will be a lifelong love of direct investing. Angela and her team have built a great curriculum and even better network that are truly inspiring to be around and learn from. I highly recommend the group to all inspiring female investors.

I traveled from Seattle to attend the 37 Angels bootcamp after reading an article about founder Angela Lee in Entrepreneur magazine. It was a thrilling weekend that took me from an aspiring investor to one with experience. Along with the NYC events, the membership has also provided me with opportunities on the West Coast to continue investing and to network with other investors.
— Anne Farrens, 37 Angels Member
I love being part of 37 Angels. The community that Angela has built in a short period of time is exceptional. Besides the interesting deal flow and the great curation of events, the women that are part of the network have been wonderful to get to know. As an active angel who also has a full time job I find it is absolutely worth my time to be a member of 37 Angels.

37 Angels is a great platform for women entering the world of angel investing. Having started my career at a Bay Area law firm that serviced start-ups in the first “dot com” boom, I can see what has and has not changed in the start-up ecosystem. The beautiful thing about 37 Angels is that both male and female founders can feel comfortable pitching, and women investors can feel comfortable learning and investing. There is a great deal of diversity and that diversity can be good for the start-up ecosystem and one’s portfolio.

Over the past several years, I had been presented with several companies seeking angel capital. A few were extremely compelling, but I did not have the analytical expertise or confidence to pull the trigger. A friend who had participated in the 37 Angels bootcamp suggested I enroll. I took the weekend course, and must say that it far exceeded my expectations. Angela Lee is an amazing teacher, resource, and mentor. The women that participated were all exceptional in their own right as well. I have gone to several follow-up sessions and have really advanced my level of understanding. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in Angel investing.

Joining the 37 Angels network is an amazing experience. The bootcamp’s highly interactive format and engaging content, along with the VC math deep dive boosted my investor toolkit, providing hands-on ownership of the entire angel investment process. 37 Angels attracts an excellent flow of start-ups at pitch forums, as well as an impressive community of investors and founders. Sharing our knowledge and forming relationships in a collaborative and fun environment makes this angel community an incredible group of people.

My 37 Angels experience has been incredibly rewarding both educationally and by providing a terrific team approach to early stage investing. There is no better way to get started than the bootcamp and the follow-up sessions are terrific refreshers. I look forward to every pitch presentation and the numerous invitations to join accelerator sessions, NYC angel networking events and mentoring opportunities.

My experience at the 37 Angels bootcamp taught me so much and positioned me to be a more active and informed seed investor. To women who want to explore this form of investing I would say, "go for it and get to the bootcamp!” the skills, resources, and networking opportunities are all waiting for you!

The 37 Angels bootcamp is a great platform to launch yourself into the world of early-stage investing. Through the network, I've attended a deep dive on cap tables, accelerator demo days with 37 Angels mentors, and a hackathon all in the last couple of months. 37 Angels gives you access to so many events and opportunities - it's all yours for the taking!
— Monica Logani, 37 Angels Member
I took the 37 Angels bootcamp and joined the network last summer before starting business school this year. It was very useful learning the fundamentals for early stage investing, performing due diligence, and evaluating infant startups. I've found over the course of this year, the course helped me in assessing business models and founding teams as well as developing term sheets. While the bootcamp has been very instrumental, the network is what has the lasting effect. Coming out of business school I look forward to jumping right into the 37 Angels network and the NYC entrepreneurship community!
