Why angel invest on your own when you can leverage the economies of scale and like-minded companionship of a syndicate. We envision a global network of a 1000 executives  joining us in a journey to #giveback to empower the future of change.

We pride ourselevs as a well curated community of C-suite executives who have more than 15 years of industry experience with an impeccable  track record, leading at global multinationals and renown brands.

“You don’t have to be an entrepreneur to own a business.”

Let the next generation run the business and find the talent they understand better than us. Fund, advise on boards and open your network of connections to them to help scale their business.

“You don't have to be a millionaire to begin angel investing.”

We enable the lowest barrier to entry on minimum investment size and fees to help you build a cool, diversified portfolio. Our philosophy is nothing beats having skin in the game and to learn angel investing by doing, together with peers.

How does C-shark Tank work?

Private Pitch

Every two months, we invite 10 startups to pitch to our members. Members meet onsite or via zoom*.

Unlike other angel networks, we coordinate and consolidate all prep and follow up, making it more efficient for both potential investors and startups in a deal flow.

Everyone who has attended is fascinated by the spread of ideas pitched and, even more so, the shared learning from corporate peers, angel investors and VCs.

*recordings are available to those who can’t be present

Deep Dive

Two or three startups are shortlisted for DeepDive per investment cycle, which typically lasts for 2 hours. We prioritise members who are subject matter experts relevant to sectors of shortlisted startups to participate in the validation DeepDive. Subsequently, we conduct further due diligence* and a report is shared with all members. If the report is positive, we proceed with an investment DeepDive with the startup founders.

*We consult with VCs, experts external to our network as and when necessary.

Network and Learn

Every part of our program is designed to maximize learning opportunities for our members with regards to startups involvement and angel investing.

We organize executive lunches, workshops and partnerships with other players in the startup eco-system to promote more experience and connections sharing.

Advise and Mentor

We match 2 to 3 advisors per startup we invest in as well as non-portfolio startups in exchange with sweat equity or at a nominal fee or in kind.

Since  20 February 2020, we have raised more than $4 million and have funded more than 20 startups over 5 seasons of C-shark Tank with a growing community of more than 100 C-sharks and a pool of non-executive angels. More than 100 VCs have joined us as jury to help us curate promising startups.
