INVESTORS

Connecting investors with
Alabama’s brightest innovators
and emerging technologies

Alabama capital network

A non-profit organization dedicated to building Alabama’s innovation economy by introducing investors to promising entrepreneurs and innovators.

We spend thousands of hours every year working deep inside incubators, accelerators, and universities talking to every innovator we find. From these conversations we typically see 350 startup pitches in various stages of maturity. Our goal is to help these innovators advance along their journey by making connections to investors, supply chain partners, potential team members, and future customers. Through our monthly Zoom calls and quarterly Showcase meetings, we introduce the best of these to our membership.

ACN does not make investment recommendations, we only introduce members to the best and brightest companies and let them take it from there.

Membership Levels

Individual membership gives you access to year-round events, including

  • Monthly “Studio” Zoom calls where we interview emerging entrepreneurs and hear their brief 7-minute pitches. These calls allow for Q&A, and investors find them to be the fastest way to be the first in line when exciting companies begin to raise capital.
  • Quarterly “Showcase” meetings where our members gather in person to hear the highest rated companies from Studio pitches. These events include ample networking with other investors, where many of our members find significant value – the ability to share insights, federate on deals, and collaborate with other like-minded investors
  • Monthly newsletters with insights from around the state detailing developments in the statewide entrepreneurial ecosystem
  • Access to resources and membership benefits provided by the Angel Capital Association, including conferences, educational webinars, training, and syndicated deal flow

Corporate membership gives you access to year-round events, including

  • All benefits enjoyed by individual members, accessible by up to five employees
  • Expanded conversations with our team to further hone the types of companies we introduce
  • Referrals from our stream of entrepreneurs we work with – the startups we work with need our corporate partners’ services, and we’re constantly making introductions

Impact Partnership gives you benefits at the individual and corporate level, as well as:

  • Invitation for up to seven employees to attend all ACN events
  • Guest speaking opportunities at entrepreneur-only events, panel presentations, and guest blog post opportunities
  • A dedicated seat on the ACN advisory board
  • Your corporate logo featured prominently on website and marketing materials
  • Proactive support and search for relevant solutions to business challenges and investment interests – we work to understand the startups and innovations that mean the most to your business, and we proactively seek founders and startups that have the potential to impact your industry
