Thank you to all of the companies that pitched the Tech Coast Angels - and to the Angels for attending and giving great feedback to our entrepreneurs!


Tech Coast Angels (TCA) is the largest angel investment group in the United States and the most significant source of funding for startup companies in Southern California. They are actively seeking great startup companies to fund.

More than providing money, TCA brings connections, knowledge, mentoring and operational assistance to early-stage entrepreneurs who have game-changing ideas. TCA is very mindful that some of the greatest companies in the US began with angel investments. TCA funding is not limited to the technology industry since TCA members invest in exciting companies in a wide range of industries including medical devices, consumer products, internet, IT, life sciences, media, software and environmental services, among others.tca2

TCA generally funds startup companies that have a very high potential for growth in the next 3-to-5 years. TCA is a non-profit organization. InSoCal CONNECT works closely with the Tech Coast Angels to identify and mentor possible companies that will be considered for investment.

We had nine companies present to the Angels, and over 90 people registered for the event. It was a packed house and everyone walked away happy. The companies received great exposure and feedback from investors, the investors got a chance to see some new companies (and expressed interest in following up with some of them), and the audience had a chance to see polished, professional investment pitches in an educational setting. 

Each company was required to submit their original pitch deck to Jay Goth, who then held practice sessions with all of the presenters. After several practice sessions and a "dry run" or dress rehearsal, the companies all did a great job of presenting themselves to the community!
