Band of Angels Application
If you submit an application for review to the Band it will be forwarded to a Pre-Screening Committee. This committee is made up of experts from every high tech category including digital media, fintech, life science/medtech, semiconductor, software, and telecommunications. The committee reviews close to 50 plans a month and selects 6 for an invitation to the Deal Screening, held on the last Wednesday of each month.
