Network Affiliate

For those who want to stay up to date on Red Bear Angels, pitch in with diligence, and provide advisory support to entrepreneurs when needed, but would not like to attend the events or have access to deal flow.


Our Process

If you think Red Bear Angels is a good fit for you, please create a “Deal Room,” here and we will reach out for a screening call.

Every company that fits the Cornell-affiliated parameters will be invited to participate in a 30-minute screening session, which the RBA Investment Team conducts in partnership with Big Red Ventures, the student-run VC firm at Cornell’s Johnson School of Management.

Red Bear Angels takes the company through its proprietary diligence process, which includes calling up on our Expert Network and securing a Deal Lead: A member of RBA who has relevant domain expertise.

Two companies are invited to present to Red Bear Angels every month.

All Red Bear Angels are invited to tune in and take up to two weeks to determine if they would like to participate in the investment opportunity.

Monthly presentations occur on the third Thursday of every month at 3pm ET via webinar.
