    San Joaquin Angels is an angel investment group located in San Joaquin County in California's Central Valley. San Joaquin Angels provides attractive private company investment opportunities to its members, while enhancing economic prosperity through the financing and growth of local businesses. Following a six-month planning process which included considerable research and input from the San Joaquin Partnership, local government officials and staff, economic development professionals, educators, and citizens, AngelouEconomics (AE) presented the San Joaquin Partnership with an updated Strategic Plan for economic development in San Joaquin County. Considerable interest was expressed in an Angel network for San Joaquin County, leading to the development of San Joaquin Angels which held its inaugural event, February, 2008. Generally, the minimum an individual San Joaquin Angel invests in a company is $25,000. San Joaquin Angels investors are assessed an annual membership fee of $500.
