Join Innosphere’s Accredited Investor Network

Get notified of pitch days and investment news by submitting your information below. All information is treated confidentially.

The Innosphere Investor Network is a group of active, accredited investors seeking highly-vetted, investment-ready opportunities in technology startup companies.  These investors intend on making direct investments into technology startup and emerging growth companies and will receive invitations to Innosphere’s quarterly investor-only events.

What we’re not: This is not an Angel group. There are no fees or mandatory meetings associated with this investor network. There are no investor-lead due diligence requirements.

Deal Flow: Innosphere Client Companies invited to present to this group are pre-vetted by Innosphere and may have already secured early investment. The investment opportunities presented at our quarterly events are typically ideal for Angel and Family Office investors and have early exit investment potential. Innosphere Ventures Fund II will also promote investment opportunities to network members.

For more information or to register for the Investor Network: Registering in the Innosphere Investor Network only takes a minute, and ensures you get notified of investment opportunities on a quarterly basis. To quickly self-accredit into the Investor Network, please complete the online form you see on this page. Questions can also be directed to Innosphere CEO, Mike Freeman.
