South Coast Angel Network (SCAN) is a forum for the introduction of entrepreneurs to potential investors through presentations and other mechanisms. Members of the SCAN are individual angel investors interested in financing privately held companies or ventures typically in an early stage of development. The purpose of membership in SCAN is to provide members of SCAN exposure to investment opportunities in early stage companies located, or doing business, in the region, including specific investment opportunities presented by other members, and to provide forums for education and active interchange of information and ideas, regarding the formation, development and financial structuring of early stage companies.
