Our DNA is helping startups thrive in building their business plans, pitches and fund-raising through coaching and mentorship. Our process, outlined below, ensures careful consideration of all qualified applicants by our member screening committee. For those companies that pass the initial screening, they are offered the opportunity to pitch to the SBA members. Additional due diligence is performed for potential investment from us or from other business angel groups, banking institutions and private equity funds. And this is how successful startups are born.
