Aggregate capital in your community and across West Slope Angel chapters.
Few rural ecosystems can boast a unicorn, but the West Slope of Colorado produced a $1.7B exit in Mercury Payment Systems. In fact, the West Slope has a number of notable exits and ever-growing momentum in the startup community. The unparalleled quality of life has drawn an enormous base of financial and intellectual capital. It is WSA’s mission to activate those resources at a regional level for the good of the communities we cherish and to set the model for community connectivity and networking at a much broader scale.
Four Points Funding is proud to serve as managers of West Slope Angels, brining full support and coordination to communities across our region. We passionately believe the best outcomes for everyone result from strong community engagement, and we are committed to bringing together the largest network possible in order to bring the best resources available to companies with the greatest opportunity for success.

It's important to note that by joining West Slope Angels, you do not need to be part of a chapter. Being a member of one or more chapters will give you insight into more location specific events and deals. If you're not near an existing chapter, or you just prefer to operate independently, you scan still receive a monthly newsletter of network wide deals and information.
