How Does Angel Funding Work?

MLA members individually invest in high potential companies through an equity position or a convertible debt instrument. There is no cost to the entrepreneur. 

The entrepreneur submits an online Application for Funding to MLA and, if accepted, begins the process that leads to funding. 

 

Collectively, the members look to invest between $250,000 and $1,000,000 in each opportunity.
