Joining GAN provides various benefits to investors, as opposed to investing alone, both financial and non-financial.

These benefits include:

Financial

Provides a more efficient means for matching individual angels & investee companies
• Increases deal flow & quality; companies are pre-qualified via assessment, screening and selection
• Economic power inherent in group investing, larger deal sizes; potential for syndication and co-investment
• Evaluation and due diligence by the deal team mitigates investment risk and spreads the workload
• Newer angels learn from experienced angels; broader knowledge base increases intellectual capital and knowledge
• Return enhancement through critical assessment of pre-money valuation and financial forecasts, and via portfolio diversification
• Spread investment process costs over a broader base of investors

Non-Financial

• Varying roles on an investment-by-investment basis – board member, advisory board, lead investor, or more passive role
• Interaction and “cheque-book networking” with like-minded investors & entrepreneurs
• Preferential referral of opportunities to the group
