Coachella Valley Angel Network (CVAN) is a group of experienced entrepreneurs and accredited investors that have formed an angel investment group. CV Angel Network is interested in providing early-stage funding to start-up companies--primarily those based in the Coachella Valley. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds and professions, including medical technology, consumer goods, computer technology and financial services.
The goal of CV Angel Network is to improve the economy by helping to develop new businesses that can provide jobs, economic growth and an expanded and more diverse business base in the Coachella Valley. Our members make individual decisions on investments, with CV Angel Network serving as a "clearing house" to present these entrepreneurial business opportunities.
The CV Angel Network has a close working relationship with The University of California, Riverside School of Business Administration. UCR Palm Desert helps to supplement and support the evaluation and advisory assistance (mentoring) that is part of the CV Angel Network process--and that is needed to help start-up companies succeed.
