How We Work


Red Bear Angels is a highly active investment firm that focuses on companies founded or led by Cornell alumni, students or research. 

Members of RBA* have access to proprietary deal flow, a professional diligence service to vet that deal flow, and a close-knit community of esteemed Cornell alumni in venture. Cornell entrepreneurs leverage RBA for access to angel investors and alumni with domain expertise, while the RBA team proactively sources, diligences and facilitates competitive investment opportunities for the group’s members. 

One of the fastest-growing angel groups to ever come to market, Red Bear Angels has invested ~7 Million across 21 companies to-date on behalf of its 800-person network, with an average check size of $250,000.

*Members of RBA do not have to be Cornell alumni.
