- We are an angel syndicate with >1,250 accredited investor members.
What is our investor member base?
- Self directed angels. Usually domain experts in an engineering discipline, sales, etc. Many have worked at or are currently working at top startups
What makes RUV Alliance unique?
- We primarily source deals demand first: we aggregate interest from our members and then approach target companies.
- We fulfill SAFE deals directly using SAFE automation platforms instead of creating SPVs
- In special cases, we will create SPVs for priced equity rounds and only if we have >$80k in pre commits.
- We encourage direct relationships between founders and syndicate members
How does the Alliance make money?
- Zero carry, management fee, or commission for SAFE deals
- 2% one time management fee only for situations where the syndicate creates a SPV to invest
- Founders will never be charged anything in any form to raise from our group.
How do we source deals?
- Member demand
- We continuously query our members for which companies they have strong interest in.
- Admin discretion
- If one of our admins feels a deal would be a good fit for the group, they may launch the deal
Does the founder need a lead investor in order to bring a deal to the Alliance?
- No. As long as the founder has terms in mind, then we can launch the deal
- If there is a lead, then the founder can share the term sheet with us
