Lead Angels is an alumni focused angel network started by a team of three originally from IIT Bombay. We currently have chapters in Mumbai, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
Our focus is to assist investment into early stage ideas and companies founded by students and alumni of premier institutions. We also work closely with these institutions, their incubators, alumni associations and student entrepreneurship cells.
Many of our members are also alumni of these institutions. Other members include successful entrepreneurs and senior corporate professionals.
Angel investments are a part of private equity investments and research shows that well diversified professionally managed angel investments provide similar if not superior returns to other forms of private investments.
