The NEAA Creed expresses the reasons why our members join, why they participate and how we as an organization can positively impact American business and enhance our nation’s leadership in the global marketplace.
Collectively, the National Eagles and Angels Association (NEAA) membership is defined as “pro-American- business-oriented investors” whose mission is to support U.S. emerging growth companies, and, in turn, promote strong job growth, technological superiority, wealth creation and national economic prosperity.
By becoming a member of NEAA, you are joining a national alliance of like-minded individual investors and business angels, who accept the high risk while seeking the potential high returns that can be commensurate with successful investment in entrepreneurial growth companies.
Our membership base is concentrated in 19 Chapters located in key metro markets throughout the United States. At each quarterly Chapter meeting, members and invited guests enjoy gourmet meals, camaraderie, keynotes and formal presentations from up to four NEAA index companies and Member-Voted companies seeking access to seed or growth capital and/or general market exposure.
In the event Chapter meetings cannot be attended, NEAA members are encouraged to take full advantage of the information, tools and resources made available on this web site, where they can access member blogs, video presentations, corporate due diligence materials, startup and early stage company postings and participate in online member discussion groups and forums.
From time to time, NEAA also undertakes special invitation-only weekend retreats, investor education seminars and other select events reserved exclusively for its higher tier membership. NEAA then welcomes its entire membership to its Annual NEAA Congress, which is held at the end of each year.
Investment opportunities available to NEAA members range from providing critical seed capital to early stage companies to participating in debt and/or equity offerings for public and private companies. In addition, NEAA members look to make investments via open market purchases in the stocks of small-cap and micro-cap companies that:
- Offer strong upside potential through rapid organic growth or defined acquisition strategies;
- Have proven management teams in place;
- Have disruptive products and/or services capable of addressing high growth market opportunities;
- Have a stock deemed to be trading significantly below its fair market value price; and
- Lack general market or investment community awareness and support, thus presenting an undervalued or undiscovered investment opportunity for members.
