India’s Largest Angel Network

Indian Angel Network is India's first & Asia's largest business angel group with successful entrepreneurs and dynamic CEOs interested in investing...
  • All individual members are inducted in their individual capacities and not as representatives of their organizations. Their membership fees may be paid directly by them or their investment company or any organization they choose. However, members in this category would be able to make investments in ventures brought to the Network only in their name (this of course includes jointly with family members or through wholly owned investment companies or Trusts). The fiduciary ownership of the investment will personally be that of the member (or family) and will not be on behalf of any other person or corporate body.

  • Institutional members will be joining as representatives of an institution. In such a case any investment made in ventures would need to be in the name of that institution. The membership fee for institutional members is higher than for individual members. Institutional members, just like individual members, would need to abide by the same governance rules set out in this framework document.

  • The Network is a pan India organization. While its Secretariat is headquartered in Delhi, it looks at investing in ventures from across India (including some overseas ones that have India centricity). Its members are drawn from all over India and some from overseas

  • New members may only be proposed by existing members. Potential new members who may have connected with the Secretariat would be encouraged to find a sponsor from the existing members. In either case, the Secretariat will circulate profiles along with the motivators for joining the Network of all proposed invitees to all Network members. If any member of the Network has an objection to any proposed name they should communicate the same to the Management Committee members so that the matter can be discussed and decided upon by the MC. Invitations will then be sent out to the accepted members. As a guideline, in case the nominee is not known to the member personally and/ or is not a well known name in his/ her own right, then it is recommended that the member does his/ her own checking on the nominee, in particular, related to areas of expertise, time that he/ she can spend on network activities, etc, before proposing the name.

  • With reference to investment opportunities that have been tabled at the Network, the members agree that:

    If any member (institutional or individual) has any interest in a particular deal i.e. as an investor, director or in any other capacity he/she would need to disclose this to the Secretariat immediately on that deal being tabled.

    If any network member, institutional or individual was already pursuing a deal before it came to the Network, then he/ she would need to immediately notify the Secretariat and they will then be excluded from the process going forward for that particular deal

    No Network member (individual or institutional) would have parallel discussions with the entrepreneur outside of the process, which includes a restriction on a member entering into a separate understanding with an investee company for any consideration.

  • All members agree that details of any deal, entrepreneurs, etc. will be kept strictly confidential and will not be discussed or revealed outside the Network.

  • All members will sign the Framework document in acceptance of the broad principles that will govern the functioning of the Indian Angel Network. Network members will also agree to adhere to a code of confidentiality regarding all opportunities tabled at the forum.

  • A primary source of deal flow for Indian Angel Network is through member referrals, and members are encouraged to refer deals that they find attractive to the Network.

  • Indian Angel Network does not maintain a fixed corpus. Indian Angel Network also does not have a fixed time horizon for making investments.
