Bay Angels, founded in 1998, is one of the most respected and important angel groups in Silicon Valley. We like companies in major industries in large or expanding target markets—and possess highly scalable business models. Companies that address major problems for large (or potentially large) target markets that can generate significant demand are highly desirable. However, we generally avoid participating with companies that have long investment and exit cycles, such as biotech and heavy hardware. Both Roger King, the founder, and Jordan Wahbeh, Managing Partner, enjoy a solid reputation in the eco-system and have recruited stellar members which include both accredited investors and members of the venture capital community. Over the years they've helped a number of early-stage companies acquire funding angel and launch their offerings.
