Note from Kauffman Fellows

The Society of Kauffman Fellows ( is a global community of investors and entrepreneurs who seek to improve the world by sponsoring and fostering innovation. 

Our AngelList Syndicate is a mechanism to share proprietary investment opportunities generated from our network of 400+ Kauffman Fellows located around the world. The Kauffman Fellows network includes investors at Sequoia, Greylock, NEA, Kleiner Perkins, Emergence Capital, DFJ, Venrock, Shasta and more. 

All net carry (minus AL fees) will be contributed to the Kauffman Fellows endowment. We syndicate the deals that we believe will yield the best returns unless explicitly expressed (ex: impact deals).


We source our deals from within the Kauffman Fellows network. 

We only accept Backers who are Kauffman Fellows or friends of Kauffman Fellows network. This includes Fellows, mentors, firms, partners, and friends of the organization who have participated or supported the program.

Backers who have pre-funded their accounts will get priority in deals.
