The GA and ATA are two private groups of high net worth individuals that provide a platform for evaluating and selecting companies to fund. Neither currently manage a fund or pool of money. Rather, investments are made by a handful of members interested in an opportunity.
Since joining ATA in early 2011, I have gained tremendous insight into both the opportunities and pitfalls of early-stage technology investing. In the process, I have met some great people that share my interests in investing in, and mentoring early stage companies.

I've been very impressed with the deal flow at ATA...the breadth and depth of angel opportunities should be attractive to many types of investors. In addition, ATA members have great industry experience which is very valuable to the diligence and deal process.
