San Diego Angel Conference

Bringing Entrepreneurs and Investors Together

What is the San Diego Angel Conference?

Angels say, there are not enough good deals.

Entrepreneurs say, there aren’t enough investors writing checks.

The San Diego Angel Conference (SDAC) aims to improve both of these issues through a series of events that build up to a one-day conference. SDAC is open to any member of the community interested in learning more about starting a company and investing in a new business.

SDAC is the culmination of many months of due diligence, review, evaluation, and selection by the investors participating in the Conference. The entrepreneurial candidates are narrowed down and on the day of the Conference, the conference finalists have the opportunity to make their best pitch for why their company deserves the investment.

This event is open to the public. Investors make the final decision on which company will receive the funds, but there is a People’s Choice Award for all participating attendees.


Seasoned community-minded investors, paired with novice first-time investors create an LLC, and pool their funds to create an investment of up to $200,000, to be awarded at SDAC. More information for investors.


Entrepreneurs receive intense coaching and feedback to ensure deal flow improves, as they prepare to compete at SDAC. More information for entrepreneurs.
