Funding the Future

Charleston Angel Partners is dedicated to developing and sustaining a community of energetic leaders who invest in early stage companies with high growth potential.  With a current membership base that includes manufacturing, software engineering, pharmaceutical, and bioscience professionals; Charleston Angel Partners continuously seeks to diversify our membership.  As our membership diversity increases, so too will the value of Charleston Angel Partners to our portfolio companies, as well as our members.  Charleston Angel Partners members enjoy a curated 'dealflow' of early stage high growth companies.  These capable entrepreneurs are usually past the bootstrap period, and have already received seed money through previous round(s) of fundraising.


Membership Basics



With an exceptionally lean fee structure and no minimum requirement to invest, Charleston Angel Partners puts our members in the best position to get the highest returns possible.  As Charleston’s longest-tenured angel group, our members have time-tested knowledge of how to invest wisely, with confidence, in a variety of industries.  Charleston Angel Partners allows investors to remain anonymous, if they so choose.  Investments themselves remain anonymous through the Charleston Angel Partners entity.  The decision to invest always remains in the hands of the individual member.

Charleston Angel Partners members only align themselves with the investment opportunities that they believe in, and to the degree with which they are comfortable.
