Become a local investor in startups 

About the Hudson Valley Angel Hub

The majority of Americans are invested in the stock market. Why do we happily surrender our savings and investment money to financiers hundreds or thousands of miles? According to Michael Shuman, 5% of the total population could be an angel investor - so if we take even 1% of the 2.3 million people who live in the Hudson Valley, that's a potential 23,000 potential angel investors. We created HV Angel Hub to bridge the gap between people who want to learn and become an angel investor, so that the startups in our area can find the perfect match in capital. 

We're on a mission is to build local investing capacity by promoting local investing best practices and ethics in investing, and by connecting angel investors (current and aspiring) to entrepreneurs and college students, through a variety of educational programs.
