IrishAngels Investment Group

IrishAngels is a Chicago-based angel investment group focusing on promising, early-seed or Series A start-ups in which a founder, Board member, or active investor has a Notre Dame connection (alumni, parent, faculty, staff etc.) Founded in 2012, IrishAngels has grown to include over 210 investors and issues funds of up to $3 million.


Their industries of interest are internet and mobile, medical, social enterprise, software (cloud and enterprise), and “special markets” (retail, B2B services, etc.) Participating students will research and propose a social enterprise start-up in which IrishAngels could invest. A travel team will then present the findings at IrishAngels’ offices in Chicago, having their ideas and findings critiqued by current venture capitalists.
