We are a fast-growing group of business angels that is bridging the gap between Venture Capitalist (VCs) and how angels operate today, by joining the best of both worlds for our members.
The members of Arches Capital are seasoned and experienced entrepreneurs in various kind of markets and disciplines. They share an interest in (investing in) early stage startups and look for a trusted platform to build a solid investment portfolio, share and use community knowledge, lower risk profile, in order to make a healthy profit. Typical members have the ability to freely invest at least EUR 50K per year.
Through their paid subscription of Arches Capital, members have access to the exclusive member-only events, the online deal platform and portfolio, and deal flow. Arches Capital is unique in its way of deal management: members can chose on a deal-by-deal basis where to join Venture Capital type and size investments. On exit of a deal, received profits are distributed immediately.

Operate like a VC; be an Angel
Arches Capital offers its members a deal flow that normally can only be found with established VCs. By actively scouting startups through our own network and channels such as (local and international) accelerators, partnering venture companies, governmental institutes, and other off- and online networks, we continuously assess hundreds opportunities each year and select each month the top 3 most promising investment propositions.
Each month we organize (member- and invite-only) our Monthly Meeting in which our members get in touch with the carefully screened new investment opportunities (fast growing startup and scale-up companies) and to network with the other members. We aim to organize these meetings in varying and inspiring corporate locations. For as long restrictions due to Covid-19 apply for physical events, these events are held online. During the monthly meetings, the startups (generally 3-4) will present themselves to the members in face-to-face round-table discussions.
During and following the monthly meeting, members express their interest to invest in a company. Arches Capital will start the (commercial, technical and legal) due diligence process, and together with the group of interested investors appoint an Investment Lead, who will assist in closing the deal and take a seat in the (advisory) board of the invested company.
