More than just a one-time cash infusion, New Dominion Angels' portfolio companies benefit from the vast wealth of contacts and insight gained from members’ years of collective experience as successful entrepreneurs, business leaders and investors. The relationship with an angel group can result in sales leads, help with key hires and follow-on financing assistance. 


New Dominion Angels strives to create an efficient, transparent and meaningful experience for companies and our process emphasizes a high degree of interaction between the company and our group. Regular feedback and reciprocal learning are key features.


1. Application Submission. Entrepreneurs submit investor materials either directly through info[at]newdominionangels.com or www.gust.com. (However, the best way to get in the door is through a referral via a New Dominion Angels' member or professional connection.)

2. Initial Screening. New Dominion Angels will follow-up with companies that fit our investing criteria for a phone screening.

3. In-person Screening. New Dominion Angels invites five companies to participate in monthly meetings with our Screening Committee.

4. Dinner Meetings. Each month New Dominion Angels selects two companies to meet our members at Dinner Meetings, where companies pitch and field Q&A. After the presentation, members vote to either advance to due diligence or to stop the process.

5. Due Diligence. If the company reaches the requisite interest threshold, New Dominion Angels forms a due diligence team made up NDA members who have relevant technical or industry backgrounds. We may include a skeptic.

6. Investment. If the company passes through due diligence in high standing, New Dominion Angels presents a due diligence packet to members who make individual decisions on whether to invest. New Dominion Angels then pools committed capital together and forms a single investment vehicle to execute the investment, with a minimum aggregated investment of $200,000.
