Angel Track

A community and masterclass for exceptional emerging angels.
Building on the insights, exchange of experience and impact of our first class, this fall First Round will bring two new cohorts of 15 phenomenal entrepeneurs and emerging investors to the growing Angel Track community. Over six evening sessions, we invite you to learn from some of the most insightful and successful early investors in the business, exchange ideas, tactics and advice with each other, and practice the craft of investing together.
Applications for the fall are now closed. Click here for updates on future sessions.

You said “more”

so we said “let's”

First Round is thrilled to offer Angel Track in San Francisco again and to extend the program to New York after receiving incredible applications from the NYC community during the last cycle. While the community will stretch between the two coasts, each cohort will be guided by local First Round partners and startup investors.

Understand founder potential

Previous Guides


1. Who should apply?
Anyone interested in getting started or improving as an angel investor in technology startups should apply. You might have started a company, worked at a fast growing startup or somewhere larger. You should be excited about backing the next wave of entrepreneurs.
2. Do I need to be an accredited investor to apply?
No. While investing in startups requires you be accredited, you don't need to be an accredited investor to take part in this program.
3. Do I need to have made angel investments before?
No. We're expecting several participants will be completely new to angel investing.
4. Where are the sessions held?
All the sessions will be held in-person at either First Round's San Francisco or New York office.
5. Can I apply to both programs?
No. We strongly encourage you to apply only to the city in which you spend most of your time as it will offer you the most value in meeting others and learning from those around you. You will have to choose a city in your application and we will only review one application per person.
6. When are the in-person sessions?
Sessions run from 6pm-9pm on the following evenings:
San Francisco: 9/11, 9/25, 10/9, 10/23, 11/6, 11/27
New York: 9/17, 10/2, 10/16, 10/30, 11/14, 11/28
7. What if I can't make all the sessions?
We strongly encourage everyone to attend all sessions. We ask about this in the application and it will be a deciding factor.
8. Do I receive any investment capital as part of being in the program?
This program is focused entirely on education and community. We will not be providing capital to participants.
9. When do applications close?
