    Salt Lake Life Science Angels (SLLSA) is a not-for-profit corporation organized in 2006 to facilitate investment in seed-stage healthcare and life science companies in Utah and the Mountain West. The group is made up of approximately twenty accredited executives, entrepreneurs, scientists, and clinicians seeking investment opportunities in early-stage companies. SLLSA strives to be a benefit to both its angel investor members and to the community's start-up companies. SLLSA is primarily interested in seed-stage life science (including medical device & product, service, HCIT, pharma, and biotech) companies located in Utah and the Mountain West. The group typically invests between $50,000 and $500,000 in companies with pre-money valuations below $3 million. The SLLSA meets on the first Tuesday of each month. Typically, one company will present at this monthly lunch meeting. Prior to presenting at a monthly meeting, companies will be vetted by the Managing Director and usually by one of SLLSA's screening members.
