The Austrian Angel Investors Association is Austria's leading network for angel investors. Founded in 2012 as a non-profit association, the organisation has meanwhile developed into one of the leading angel networks in Europe. With more than 200 members from all over Austria, the aaia is an important cornerstone in the domestic startup ecosystem and a sought-after partner for politics, media & Co.
The main focus of the organisation’s activities is on networking active and prospective angel investors, the transfer of investment-relevant know-how and the improvement of the general conditions for startup investments. Furthermore, aaia is a leading member of the European Business Angel Network (EBAN) and aims to facilitate cross-border startup ecosystems and investments.
Network: We connect aaia members with one another and with other stakeholders of the startup scene, because a strong network is the key to success. We take the individual interests of our members into account and create an informal environment for learning from each other and for joint investments.
Startups: We match our members with innovative ideas and exciting startups. Individually and according to the respective personal investment profile. In addition we organize regular co-investor pitches, where aaia members can look for suitable co-investors.
Education and Training: We accompany our members on their way as investors and support them in finding and managing their first investments through targeted know-how exchange and skill transfer within our community. For this purpose we organize Masterclasses, webinars and Investor Academies.
Politics: We actively represent the interests of angel investors on behalf of our members and are intensively engaged in improving the political conditions for startup investments. You can find an extract of our goals for the business location Austria here.
International: We are part of the European Business Angel Network (EBAN) and network our members with business angels, experts, stakeholders and startups throughout Europe. We also invite our members to our annual Angel Trip and bring together the most influential investors and VCs from CEE at the Investors Day.
