WHO WE ARE
Acadiana Angels is an initiative of INNOV8 Acadiana, and made possible through the Community Foundation of Acadiana. Our growing local team of accredited investors come from all over the Acadiana region. We screen early and growth stage companies each week, inviting those ready for investment to present at our monthly meetings.
Deal flow is shared with the larger statewide NO/LA Angel Network. As such we are able to leverage finances, expertise, vetting teams, educational opportunities, events, legislation initiatives, and more as we grow our local and state-wide economies. We invite new accredited investors to attend our meetings and explore whether this type of investing is right for you.
We also invite entrepreneurs to contact us and discuss whether your plans are a good fit for the network before going through our 7 step process.
Acadiana Angel Network members will invest in the seed or Series A financing rounds of companies that are in dynamic growth markets, have strong value propositions, a sound business plan, and a strong management team with deep market knowledge — combined with a strong potential to scale.
Along with their financial capital, members also bring to the companies in which they invest a high level of human capital that translates into mentoring and operational assistance to help grow sustainable and successful businesses.
We avoid lifestyle businesses, restaurants, retail, and capital-intensive businesses.
