OUR CRITERIA

  • All applicants must click on the "Submit Your Pitch” link below and submit their application on our Gust portal. All applicant fields must be filled out or your application will not be accepted by the Gust portal or reviewed the Bridge screening committee.

  • If chosen by our Executive Committee, applicants should plan to be available for a screening call and an in-person presentation in Sarasota or other location as determined by Bridge.

  • If chosen by our Executive Committee, applicants should plan to cooperate with our Executive Committee and other members to support our due diligence process and submit information as needed.


OUR FOCUS/PROCESS

  • We look for innovative ideas driven by seasoned teams with complimentary skill sets, product/service-market fit, proof of concept and traction in the form of revenue, research and/or a current or prospective deal pipeline, realistic and organized financials/business model and a sound exit strategy leading towards venture returns.

  • While our industry focus remains broad, our current subject matter expertise is focused on healthcare, sports/entertainment, technology, consumer products and retail.

  • Through our collection of members, we have up to 3 million dollars to invest. This amount is typically spread out over multiple deals rather than just applied to one deal. We also work closely with other statewide angel investment groups and syndicate deals.

  • Our current members have prior experience as business executives, and many are former CEOs from global companies. Even better, the majority of our group are entrepreneurs who have started companies before and are familiar with the challenges and rewards. In addition, several of us are medical doctors, attorneys, educators, engineers, technologists – and most of us wear many hats at once so we know what you are going through.
