Neil here.

It’s official… Today we hit the one-year mark at the Angels & Entrepreneurs Network. Happy anniversary!

We launched this community to pull back the curtain on early-stage investing and break down the walls that kept everyday people from participating in potentially life-changing deals.

And it’s been a wild ride – in the best way possible.

Now, with over 94,000 members in our ranks, we’re looking forward to all of the amazing developments we have coming down the line for the next year and more… and we hope you’ll join us if you haven’t already.

For the sake of celebration, let’s look back on some of our greatest achievements from our first year.

We Brought Two New Experts onto Our Advisory Board

As our Network has grown, so has our team. This year, we’re excited to welcome two new experts to our advisory board: David Weisburd and Don Yocham.

David Weisburd is a serial entrepreneur and the co-head of venture capital at 10X Capital.

He’s got an incredible track record and an eye for choosing the most profitable investment opportunities for his portfolio. Since 2014, he’s invested in companies like 23andMe, DraftKings, Headspace, Palantir, and Wish… just to name a few.

And he’s a successful entrepreneur too, having founded multimillion-dollar companies like, isocket, and

Don Yocham is our Director of Deal Analysis and the Executive Director of the National Institute for Cannabis Investors with over 25 years of wealth management experience.

He’s got the scoop on some of the most credible experts in the cannabis industry, and he helps source and research world-class private equity investment opportunities for the Network.

David and Don have been super active on our Network channels getting to know you all, interviewing portfolio companies, and letting you in on some of the top tricks and tips they’ve learned during their careers.

We’ve Built Our Deal Flow into a Powerhouse

Since our launch last year, we’ve featured 47 incredible companies on our Network… and many of these deals offer some of the lowest investment minimums out there.

These deal recommendations span just about every sector you could think of: medical technology, real estate, artificial intelligence, edtech, and more.

You name it, and we’ve probably seen it.

And there are some amazing founding teams at the helm of each company we’ve recommended. Being able to see firsthand how passionate and invested these people are is awe-inspiring.

Many of our subscribers connected with these founders at our first ever Angels & Entrepreneurs Retreat in Miami last February… and as a member, you’ll have the opportunity to attend next year’s retreat, too.

Now, here’s the most amazing part.

Over the past year, these companies combined have raised at least $13 million from Angels & Entrepreneurs investors alone… and we’re still counting the numbers.

By investing in these companies and founding teams, our members can not only see some potentially massive windfalls – they’re also claiming a stake in some of the biggest ideas that we’re sure will change the world.

We’ve Amped Up Our Network’s Suite of Resources

It’s not just about the deals here… it’s about the full experience. Over the past year, we’ve kicked our Network resources into high gear, and now, our site offers a ton of amazing materials to help you learn the ropes and keep your skills sharp.

On the site, you’ll find my Angel Investor’s Bootcamp Series, where I run through all the basics you need to know when you’re first getting started. Every month, I host a Virtual Boardroom Meeting for all our members, where I run through any trends I’ve seen in the startup space and how you should take advantage.

I also bring in talented investors, entrepreneurs, and startups from around the world every few weeks for our Master Classes and Networking Sessions – both of which are powerful tools to expand your own network.

To me, though, one of the best parts of the Angels & Entrepreneurs Network is our Groups & Locals Chapters feature, where you can connect with your fellow angel investors around the world.

The number of groups has absolutely exploded over the last year, with a whopping 49 groups online so far. We’ve even got a chapter in Italy!

And there’s plenty more where that came from.
