Angels on the Water

Individuals and organizations may purchase units and become a member of Angels on the Water, a Limited Liability Corporation. Individuals and organizations who become a member of Angels on the Water share a common desire to advance our region, diversify their portfolios with high-potential start-ups and a willingness to assume start-up risk. Because returns are unpredictable and the lifespan the fund is indefinite, this investment is best suited for individuals and organizations that are sophisticated and well-informed and have the ability to provide for their annual needs and contingencies.

As an angel investment fund, Angels on the Water uses a committed capital model. Here's how it works:

  • Commit to invest a specific amount over a five-year period by signing the private placement memorandum.

  • When a deal is ready to be funded, Angels on the Water will issue a capital call to you as an investor. (No more than 30% of your commitment will be called in a single year.)

  • Once the capital call is issued, investors must submit funds within 30 days.

Units of $25,000 may be purchased. Individuals may purchase one to 40 units, by committing $25,000 to $1,000,000 (total over five years).Institutional investors may purchase two to 40 units, committing $50,000 to $1,000,000(total over five years).


When subscribing, members will also contribute 3.5% of their capital commitment in fees to fund organizational expenses and 2.5% of the capital commitment annually to fund Angels on the Water's on-going administrative expenses.

Each deal that is funded will represent no more than 10% of the fund's value, unless a special exception is approved by the Angels on the Water Board of Directors. At least half of all deals funded will support companies located in the 18-county region of Northeast Wisconsin called the NEW North. In addition to providing capital, interested investors may be asked to provide guidance, support and mentorship to business owners.
