Atlanta Technology Angels Investment Criteria

​Types of Companies
We invest in technology-oriented businesses with the potential to scale rapidly and with capital efficiency.

​Geography
We work with companies based in the Southeast, especially in the greater Atlanta area.

​Company Stage
Minimum: Prototype complete or near-complete.
Better: Beta stage with pilots or paid pilots.
Best: Fully-developed product with initial revenue and demonstrated customer interest.

​Management Team
We’re looking for talented management teams that demonstrate vision, focus, and the ability to execute. Prior CEO and domain experience are big pluses.

​Fundraising Round
We do 6-8 deals per year. We invest between $100k-$300k in deals. This means:

  • We lead rounds of $300k – $750k. Typically a convertible note with 6% interest, 20% discount, and a valuation cap between $2M – $6M.
  • We participate in a variety of “angel deals” if you already have a lead investor and defined terms.
  • We can also fill out priced rounds of various sizes and security types if you have a lead investor and 75% of the target round committed.

​Industries
We’re interested in companies that leverage technology to create disruption. For medical device and biotech companies, we prefer products and services with a clear regulatory path. We generally do not invest in pharmaceuticals.

From Our Members

When Mowgli was raising it’s seed round, the ATA came in swiftly to fill it out and then some. A few of the ATA members have been some of our most active and supportive investors. We’ve since taken on Series A funding from a strategic partner, but based on our experience we continue to recommend the ATA to entrepreneurs looking for angel funding.

Marshall Seese , Founder & CEO, Mowgli Games
