Founded in 2010 by Stanford University alumni and venture capitalists Miriam Rivera and Clint Korver, Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs (SA&E) is a Stanford Alumni Association group that seeks to strengthen Stanford’s startup community by fostering relationships among entrepreneurs and alumni investors. Our community approach to the investment process creates diverse opportunities for education, professional development, advising / mentoring, and growing one’s business and investment portfolio. SA&E has helped fund over a hundred startups to date, greatly impacting the Silicon Valley landscape.


SA&E membership is open to all Stanford alumni and affiliates including students, faculty, staff, and parents or spouses of alumni or students. At the discretion of the SA&E Board of Directors, people outside of Stanford who share the interests and objectives of the club may also be granted membership as “non-affiliated” members.

In order to attend a pitch session, angel investors must attest to accredited investor status. Non-accredited investors are welcome to join as members and attend all other events.

Annual fees:
Angel investors – $100
Entrepreneurs – FREE

Note: SA&E aims to provide a forum for interesting early stage companies at a fundraising stage to present. However SA&E is not a fund, does not do crowd sourced fundraising, nor does it provide investment advice or recommendations.  Any due diligence, negotiation or investment activity conducted by members or officers of SA&E is conducted solely as an individual of their own accord as an accredited investor, not as an officer or representative of SA&E, Stanford University, or Stanford Alumni Association. Stanford University and Stanford Alumni Association are not in any way endorsing or assessing the companies or entrepreneurs who present at SA&E nor are they involved in SA&E members or officers’ individual investment decisions regarding these companies.
