For Entrepreneurs

AoA Invested in the Northwest

What We’re Looking For

We seek extraordinary founders with product vision, a laser focus on execution and unlimited ambition who want to build high growth companies.


We invest in a wide range of market sectors, including Information Technology, Consumer Products & Services, Hardware and Life Sciences.  


We focus on seed and early stage investments.


The  majority of our portfolio companies are headquartered in the Pacific Northwest, which includes the US states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska, and the Canadian province of British Columbia. We will not invest in companies headquartered outside the Pacific Northwest unless they are referred to us by a trusted source.


Most companies we fund are seeking to raise an investment round of $500k to $1.5M in either preferred stock or convertible notes. We frequently lead investment rounds and take a board seat. We also actively syndicate and invest alongside other angel groups, individual angels and venture funds.

SEC Rule 506 of Regulation D

We ask all companies seeking funding to disclose whether their security offering falls under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D.
