Application Process

The Sacramento Angels meet six or seven times a year. We don’t meet in December and in some months over the summer. Check our calendar to see our specific meeting dates (normally on a Wednesday).

We use GUST to screen and move all applications through our selections process. SacAngel members are notified of all application postings and updates.


  • About three weeks before the dinner meeting, the Selection Committee starts the process to determine who will be invited to present
  • About two weeks before the dinner, we start sending out invitations to three or four companies who meet our criteria for a preliminary presentation by phone
  • The phone presentations are between 8 and 9am eight days before our dinner (so normally on a Tuesday)
  • Following the phone presentations, the Selection Committee decide on the two companies to present at our dinner meeting
  • Companies that are not selected may be held over for a subsequent meeting, and often we’ll try to offer suggestions to help you move forward

Dinner Presentation

Two companies present their business plans at each meeting. If sufficient interest is expressed in a particular company, a SacAngel member is assigned to coordinate further due diligence. A presentation alone offers no assurance of any financial negotiations or member investment.
