Investing in the future

Tundra Angels

Throughout the journey of entrepreneurship, startup founders often struggle to make progress. Whether it’s an idea-stage company or a company with active customers, each founder has a definition of what “progress” means to them. In this journey, they fight headwinds to overcome barriers or to resolve questions. Tundra Angels is an angel investor group that is in the business of delivering hope to entrepreneurs so founders can reach the next milestone without wasting precious time. 

We deliver:

  • Capital
    We invest money in early-stage, high-growth potential companies at the pre-seed or seed stage. 
  • Connections
    We make strategic connections from our networks – technical co-founder, advisor, subject matter expert, etc. – to force multiply startup progress and get to market more quickly. 
  • Customers
    The best type of funding is customer revenue. For companies that Tundra Angels decides to partner with, we identify strategic customers and make appropriate introductions. 


Tundra Angels is an offering of the Startup Hub, powered by the Greater Green Bay Chamber. Tundra Angels is an outflow of the Greater Green Bay Economic Development Strategic Plan. 
It’s about making Greater Green Bay, the region and Wisconsin an attractive place for startups and talent and ensuring that great people and great ideas stay here and build world-class businesses.

WE DELIVER NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO INVESTORS 

An ever-increasing personal network
Connect with other Tundra Angel members who are successful founders and entrepreneurs across the community and region. Engage with a continual flow of innovative founders and talent with fresh, ground-breaking ideas. 

Opportunity for investment returns
Tundra Angel members will receive a deal flow of attractive startup investments. In the “Returns of Angel Investors in Groups” study, the average angel investor obtained approximately 2.6 times the investment in 3.5 years – a 27% internal rate of return. 

Influence the next generation 
Membership in Tundra Angels is something bigger than any one of us. Recent research shows that tech startups are drawn to cities with small but frequent funding opportunities. As a Tundra Angel, you play a role in helping Greater Green Bay and the region thrive for the next generation. 

 

Investment Decision

In Tundra Angels, investors make their own investment decisions and perform their own due diligence. The manager’s role is to filter and present the deal opportunities he believes are the best fit for the group and the members’ experiences. There are no final decisions made at the pitch meeting; rather investment decisions are made over the course of the following weeks through due diligence conversations with the founders. Post-investment, Tundra Angels will continue to be involved in providing connections and customers to the portfolio company. 

Initially, Tundra Angels’ average investment size is between $50,000 to $100,000.
