Join Element 8

Application for membership in Element 8 is open to accredited investors who are interested in financing early-stage cleantech companies. Element 8 welcomes experienced angels and venture investors, as well as new angels who can learn by participating in a cooperative due diligence/funding process with our more experienced members.

Element 8 is a non-profit organization and incurs considerable expense in providing member services and benefits.  We are a mostly volunteer organization, with a paid part-time Executive Director.  Our costs are covered by a combination of our generous sponsors, who partner in our mission, and an annual membership fee for members.  The annual membership is currently $1,000 for individuals and $1250 for corporate memberships.

Element 8 uses ProSeeder™, an on-line tool for angel investors, to manage our application process.
