A few words from our Managing Partner, Gale Wilkinson
At VITALIZE, we invest in future of work pre-seed and seed stage deals. We are currently deploying capital out of a $35M Fund II and a 425+ member angel community.
I am a founder at heart. I’ve started two HR tech companies and two VC shops. Our team believes that VC is a people business, and we aim to build VITALIZE into a long-lasting firm with a goal of achieving 5x+ returns for our investors. We are also passionate about increasing access to the venture capital asset class through our angel network, which is the first in the world for both accredited and non-accredited investors. We are proud that 70% of our angel check writers have under-represented backgrounds.
At VITALIZE Angels, you'll join a diverse group of 425+ people learning about and investing in startups curated for you by our team at VITALIZE.
We review over 500 companies each month and bring the top two to four pre-seed deals to our VITALIZE Angels members for investment. Our angels can invest as little as $1K per deal!
We also offer education and networking opportunities. The best part? Our community is open to everyone, including both accredited and non-accredited investors, as we believe that angel investing is for everyone!
