Filling the gaps in startup funding.
Angel investors are a key source of funding for promising startups—filling the gaps between “friends & family” who provide seed money and venture capitalists, which are usually unable to consider investments below $1-2 million. At CMU-RC, we'll help you connect with angel investors in our region who are looking for high-growth startups with high-speed ROI.
The BlueWater Angels network—comprised of more than 30 high-net-worth individuals and select organizations—invests in promising companies in mid Michigan that promise a substantial return on their investment. While ROI is the primary goal, the group also recognizes the value of supporting the entrepreneurial community for the economic benefit of the entire mid-Michigan region and the state.
