How We Work

Red Bear Angels is a highly active network of angel investors and startup enthusiasts supporting companies founded or led by Cornell alumni, students or faculty.

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, members with domain expertise, and in most cases, angel investors with relevant domain expertise.

Our investment team made up of our Advisory Board, Managing Director, and MBA Associates proactively source, vet and facilitate competitive investment opportunities for our members, while also making meaningful introductions between Cornell entrepreneurs and those members who can be helpful.

One of the fastest-growing angel groups to ever come to market, Red Bear Angels has made 20 investments to-date, with an average $250,000.
