Tyler Texas Angel Network(TTAN) is a group of accredited investors, based in the Tyler, Texas area, that are looking for early stage companies with great products and bright futures . We are interested in companies with innovative products or businesses with a potential for rapid growth within a sizable market. We are looking for companies that need to expand to the next level and need investors to help grow your company and achieve the success you deserve. In general we do not invest in real estate, oil and gas or restaurant deals. The company should have a credible growth pathway to an eventual exit for the investors, such as IPO or acquisition. Our group includes successful entrepreneurs and business professionals who love to invest in innovative products, as well as offer their considerable experience and expertise in growing companies.
The ideal company, for example, may have two to five employees and a few years of product development under its belt. If the company has any revenues these are usually less than $1M annually. Often the company has previously received money from founders, family and friends, but now has capital needs for growth that exceed the capacity of these sources.
In most cases, one of our members join the board of directors to monitor the investment and provide the company with valuable experience, expertise and business connections. We will confer closely with you to assure that our investors and your company is aligned strategically.
In order to apply, please see the information on the To Apply page. You will be contacted if we decide to invite you for an initial interview. After an initial interview, you may then be invited to one and possibly two of our meetings where you will have the opportunity to present your company to our members. Interested members may form a due diligence team to evaluate your business and craft an investment in your company. For more information see Funding Process and Investment Criteria.
