Cohorts of angel investors can be a way for newcomers to the field to build community and gain confidence in their skills.

We are proud partners of the  Catalyst Angel Program through TechTown Detroit. The Catalyst cohort helps emerging angel investors in the Great Lakes Region who identify as Black, Latinx, and/or women learn how to invest and use their expertise to help support startup companies.

Participants gain a deeper understanding of angel investing, engage in curated virtual courses, and connect with peers. The program includes six, 2 hour long, virtual courses taught through the Angel Capital Association’s Angel University—free of cost.

The Catalyst Angel Program has a rolling application through August 31, 2024. Once a year, we partner with Groove Capital to lead a special Minnesota Fall Cohort, which further connects Catalyst Angel Program participants in Minnesota. The Fall Cohort includes bonus Minnesota focused content and in person events.

The Minnesota cohort is a great way to build community with other Minnesota-based angels - not just your peers in the course, but also participants from previous years.

You can learn more about the 2022 Catalyst cohort's experience, or reach out to Mickayla Rosard with any questions.
