Early Stage Equity Investment Group

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 seeks to diversify even further.  As our membership diversity increases, so too will the value of Charleston Angel Partners to all members and portfolio companies, perpetuating an exponential return on intellectual capital and investments.  Charleston Angel Partners members enjoy a curated 'deal flow' 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 Details

With an annual fee of $1,500 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 network, our members have time-tested knowledge of how to invest wisely, with confidence, in a wide breadth of industries.  Charleston Angel Partners allows investors to remain anonymous if they so choose, while the investments themselves are always kept anonymous through the entity of Charleston Angel Partners.  The decision to invest always remains in the power of the individual. Charleston Angel Partners members only align themselves with the investment opportunities that they believe in, and to the degree with which they are comfortable.
