As an angel investment firm serving Wisconsin’s northeast region, Angels on the Water strongly believes Wisconsin companies possess the qualities necessary to be leaders in innovation. The firm is dedicated to providing seed and early-stage funding and mentorship for 18 counties in the state’s northeast region – an area of the state that had only one other fund focused on later-stage companies when Angels was founded in 2011. Angels on the Water is helping to fill the funding gap for seed and early-stage companies in order to bolster the region’s economic prosperity.
