Angel Investor profiles


John May
John May is changing angel investing from a lonely and high-risk venture into a team sport. In his model, angel investors band together to pool their money and invest together in early-stage companies. However, group investing is hardly a new tack. But May, the president of New Vantage, an angel club management firm, takes it a step further. He’s breaking the mold of asking wealthy investors to fork over money and sit back while the fund manager does all the work. Not in May’s model.
