SUPPORTING HIGH GROWTH VENTURES
Suncoast Angels provides emerging companies with seed and startup capital through direct, private investments as well as offer introductions to valuable contacts essential to your company's success.
What is Angel Investing
Angel investing supports high growth ventures by providing them with seed and startup capital. Investments typically range from $50,000 to $500,000 provided by multiple angel investors, who each invest an amount of their own choosing, typically between $5,000 and $200,000.
Investors collaborate to perform due diligence prior to committing to the round, but there is no obligation on any investor to participate in any particular deal and each investor is responsible for ensuring that the due diligence is done to their satisfaction.

Proudly Supported By the Sunshine Coast Council's Grant Program
Developing and advancing an innovative society on the Sunshine Coast requires inventiveness, resources and capital. While infrastructure projects on the Coast have led to increases in trade and construction, the knowledge economy has not always received the same focus. Great inventiveness and resources are available through existing innovation hubs and workspaces. However, essential capital for early stage companies is limited to highly competitive State and Federal grants, or alternatively through friends and families.
We applied and gratefully accepted a grant for economic development from the Sunshine Coast Council. Their support to the Suncoast Angels will support growth of the ecosystem of innovative companies and a broader angel investment community.
Sunshine Coast Angels are focused on the development of an active angel investment culture; attracting local individuals to become angels and get involved in innovative companies ecosystem, utilising under-utilised experience and capital.
