ANGIN (Angel Investment Network Indonesia) has grown into the largest network of high-net-worth individuals in Indonesia who pool resources together to engage in early stage investment and mentoring.
Our Angel Investors are experienced and prominent business leaders who have built their wealth in various industries (e.g. media, real-estate, FMCG, natural resources) and are committed to provide early stage capital to entrepreneurs operating in various industries (technology/Internet, consumer products/services, social enterprises etc.). Our Angel Investors play a crucial role in nurturing Indonesian entrepreneurs with strategic guidance, deep industry expertise and access to networks. They have the patience to allow time for new industry leader and company maturation.
ANGIN angel investors are supported by a dedicated full-time operating team and a strong network of partners (advisors, co-investors, mentors) that grows the exchange of expertise and facilitate the investment process.
The ANGIN Women Fund is a special program within the Angel Investment network Indonesia (ANGIN).
First of its kind in Indonesia, ANGIN Women Fund is an early-stage fund founded by 15 influencial Indonesian women leaders who joined forces to encourage and empower women entrepreneurship and gender lens investing (investing in women) in Indonesia.
The fund backs and invests in businesses led/owned by women entrepreneurs or with a business model positively impacting women (as suppliers, customers, employees etc.). The fund is targeting technology companies, offline scaleable companies and companies with a strong social/environmental impact (social enterprises). The fund generally invests from USD 25’000 to USD 150’000 ticket sizes as seed funding and is open to co-investment with other angel investors or institutional investors (VC, Impact Investors, Banks…).
Since its inception, ANGIN Women Fund has funded 5 companies and provided training to more than 100 female-led companies.
ANGIN Impact investing believes in the power of disruptive business models across different sectors to bring social inclusion. Building on our angel investors, local team and partners, ANGIN is committed to empower social enterpreneurs who can balance profitability while delivering measurable social impact.
ANGIN invests in early stage high-impact businesses that aim to provide economic inclusion to the marginalized society. We look for entrepreneurs who are committed to deliver market based solutions to social and environmental issues that are not solved neither by the government nor the private sector. These entrepreneurs should believe in pursuing solid growth (top-line), achieving sustainability (profitability) while looking to scale; think big and fast. We want entrepreneurs who consider their social impact as a measurement of success and have potential to inspire their surroundings and deliver change to their society.
