    Description:

    The Desert Angels is a Tucson based, non-profit organization of accredited investors who seek opportunities to invest in regional startups, or early stage, no tech, low tech, or high tech companies. The organization itself serves only as a forum for its members who individually invest from their personal funds. The organization has over 80 members, many of whom have invested in a significant portfolio of companies. The primary focus of the Desert Angels is the funding of entrepreneurial ventures, and to that end, the group reviews over 100 companies per year as possible investments. The Desert Angels encourages co-ventures with venture capital funds, other angel groups, and individual investors. Since 2000, Desert Angel members have invested over $23 million in more than 60 presenting companies.
