Investment Criteria
Angular is a specialist venture capital firm, and we’re looking to
back a very specific type of company
Enterprise-oriented
If your business requires consumer
adoption, it’s not for us. We back
companies that sell products and
services to other companies.
Global ambition
While it’s possible to build a great
business without targeting a global
opportunity, we are exclusively
focused on companies that are
chasing a truly global opportunity. In
most cases, this means a focus on US
market entry from day one.
Deep technology
We are firm believers in the value of
meaningful barriers to entry, and we
know there are a lot of ways to define
and construct those barriers.
Born in Europe or Israel
We know that great innovation can
come from anywhere. Our focus is on
companies born on the "right" side of
the Atlantic, specifically in Europe or
Israel.
Outstanding founding teams with domain expertise
We believe that great founders are
the main driver of success for any
entrepreneurial venture. We like “well-
rounded” founders, but tend to prefer
founders that are “angular,” bringing
unique technical or domain expertise
to bear.
Early stage
We like to be very early. We are not
religious about being first, but most
of our investments are into
companies that have raised less than
$1M before we engage.
