AGP Miami

Angel investors providing smart capital to disruptive entrepreneurs

Funded by the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation


We're looking for talented entrepreneurs of integrity who are passionate about growing their business.


Criteria

Early-stage companies; this usually means they have not raised capital from institutional investors yet.

We are passionate about technology-related companies and inclined towards the ones that have already been validated. The more disruptive the idea, the better.

AGP Members are passionate about your ideas too! We prefer startups that have some presence in South Florida so Members can be right there with you providing their experience.


Selection Process

Application - Complete the online application & e-mail Raul, our Managing Director, raul@agpmiami.com.

Pre-Screening - Initial filter based on investment criteria.

Screening Committee - Comprised of an AGP Board Member and four regular members; it rotates every 6 months. The committee reviews submitted documents thoroughly two weeks prior to each pitch meeting to decide which entrepreneurs to invite.

Pitch Meeting - Each startup has 30min to present in person to all AGP Members. These meetings are for Members-only and are held every four to six weeks.

Due Diligence - If three AGP Members express interest at the meeting, a Deal Champion will be assigned to undertake a standardized due diligence process. 

Term Sheet - Once Due Diligence clears, the Deal Champion will lead the Term Sheet negotiation. All interested AGP Members will then invest on the same terms; including the Deal Champion.
