What differentiates us from other global angel investor networks?

Our personalised, service-oriented approach to early-stage investing.

Unlike angel investment clubs, we do not host group deal screenings and ask attendees to pick the companies they like, based primarily on intuition. Instead, we assign you an Investment Concierge — a relationship manager with early-stage investment experience — who will work with you to develop your own investment strategy. We then present you with European and US opportunities consistent with this strategy and manage the investment process at your direction, from due diligence and execution to monitoring and exit.

Moreover, in contrast to some other global angel investor networks, founders do not pay us to pitch their companies to our investors. We have our own proprietary deal flow sourced by Go Beyond, Switzerland’s premier platform for early-stage investing. But unlike a blind-pool venture fund, where you are expected to commit capital but then let others make your investment decisions, at Over & Above control remains entirely with you.

Have your own deal flow? We can help you with that too. Leverage our cadre of international Deal Leaders with expertise across numerous industries to help you vet, due diligence and execute deals brought to you by others.
