Investing in the Future

ABOUT US

Riverbend Angels is a group of investors who serve the Quad Cities Region experienced in business, technology, and agriculture industries. Our goal is to help entrepreneurs turn their own ideas and visions into successful companies. Our Entrepreneurs receive personal guidance and are provided with capital resources and expert advice from our angel members.

FOR ENTREPRENEURS

 

We're Entrepreneurs Ourselves

 The Riverbend Angels are entrepreneurs ourselves and enjoy the opportunity to interact, support and invest in other entrepreneurs and their companies. We know that entrepreneurship is very challenging and rewarding and it is a powerful vehicle to drive innovation and quality of life.
 

Benefits of Working with Angels

 Our members and network of valuable business connections include successful entrepreneurs, executive-level leaders, and business consultants.  

 

We can provide you with:

  • One-on-one advice—answers to your specific questions.

  • Networking—connecting with the leaders and experts you need to be successful.

  • Coaching—from refining your business model, to pitch, to financials.

  • Education—learn how to make your business better and more investable.

 

We can facilitate connecting you with our members and other resources to provide you free advice and pointers for your startup financing. You will get to know our member investors and they will get to know you.

Our Goal is Investing

 We are investors that seek to have a substantial return on investment for the risk we take investing in startup and early-stage companies. We do provide coaching as a way to determine if you and your startup are worthy of investment. While we want to help you succeed as much as possible, our time resources are limited and we may not be the right fit for you.
