SideCar Angels is a Boston-based angel group that rides “sidecar” with
top-tier angel groups, VCs and entrepreneurs to help build early-stage companies.

“SideCar wins every award there is for ‘easiest-to-deal-with investor’, at the US, planetary, and intergalactic levels.”

A New Kind of Angel Group

SideCar Angels is a Boston-based angel group that rides “sidecar” with top-tier angel groups and VCs to fund early-stage companies.  SideCar’s first Fund went into harvest mode at the end of 2017, having achieved an IRR of ~37%.  Fund II commenced investing in 2018 and had made investments in 13 companies by year-end.

For Members

Persons working full time or lacking technical expertise often find it hard to be angel investors. SideCar gives members access to deals that have been pre-vetted by persons with time and expertise.

For VCs and Angels

By delivering 6-figure investments within days of an emerging company’s presentation, SideCar permits deals to close faster. Because SideCar invests on the same terms and doesn’t require another round of due diligence, it’s easy and efficient for deal leads to invite SideCar into their deals.

For Emerging Companies

SideCar’s additional funding provides companies with additional runway to achieve their goals and reach their next value inflection point.

For the Angel Capital Ecosystem

By expanding angel investing to accredited investors who wouldn’t otherwise participate in traditional angel groups, SideCar hopes to increase the amount of angel funding available for quality deals. By doing so, SideCar increases the chances that entrepreneurs will have the capital needed to succeed, and deal leads will see a return on their investment.
