Key to the sustainability, success and longer term growth of the nation’s early-stage technology and higher growth businesses is the ability for these emerging companies to access increasing levels of “risk-based” capital. Often too early in their growth and evolution to meet the standard underwriting and credit criteria of commercial banks and other traditional capital providers, these promising businesses will simply not survive without the additional financial support of the private investment community – commonly referred to as “Angel Investors”. Moreover, these early-stage companies also represent significant wealth creation strategies for the individual investors which in turn creates a true “win-win” scenario for both the entrepreneur and the investor. MSIA’s unique access to high net worth, yet historically disconnected populations, can serve to drive millions of new investment dollars to worthy entrepreneurs, while concurrently enabling minority and other disconnected populations to fully participate in the rapidly expanding landscape of Angel networks and funds across the country. Whether you’re an existing investor seeking access to entrepreneurs or other investment partners, or an aspiring investor seeking to explore Angel Investing for the first time, MSIA is the right choice to assist you with your entrepreneurial investing objectives.
