At RVI, each individual makes his or her own investment decisions. Working with a group of accomplished people helps you improve the quality of your investments.  RVI sees deals early and has a community to help us turn this deal flow into good investments.

Quick and Easy

RVI goes from presentation to final decision in one week of quick, simple due diligence with the syndicating investor. And with minimum check sizes of just $5k, members are able to diversify and customize their portfolio as they see fit.

Curated Deal Flow

RVI only considers startups that have already passed the hurdle of securing another angel group or venture fund as their lead investor.

Access to Experts

Few people have all the skills needed to vet a deal. Our members get to tap the expertise and networks of their fellow members and the already-completed due diligence materials from the lead investor that nominated the company to us.


When you join RVI you benefit from the expertise of a diverse group of successful entrepreneurs to make smart investment decisions on early-stage, high-promise companies.

Up Your Game

The vigorous and interdisciplinary nature of angel investing lets members gain practical knowledge in new fields and develop powerful relationships. Angel investing is all about harnessing the investors’ collective networks, knowledge, and expertise.


Join a network of veteran business executives collaborating on the intense mental challenge of identifying the companies that can define the future.

Our Values

Do the Right Thing

RVI is committed to not only doing right by our members, but also by the startups we vet and invest in.


Time and effort need to be properly balanced with outcome. This is why RVI leverages our relationships with other angel groups to make investing easier and safer at the same time. 


To facilitate a collaborative environment, RVI holds respect for our members and for the entrepreneurs as paramount.


Via RVI’s digital format, you can join in and invest from the comfort of your own home. Plus, RVI’s rapid DD process means you’ll be spending only a few hours on deals that interest you, rather than 10+.
