SoCo Angels was developed by a group of dedicated entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial support organizations in the South Central Colorado Region, that are looking to support new business, new ideas, and new entrepreneurs. We have created a network of interested investors to help any local startups to scale up their business. This initiative covers Southern Colorado primarily focused on Pueblo, Fremont, El Paso Counties & Surrounding areas.

The SoCo Angels hosts a variety of events, including bi-monthly pitch events, networking events, investor discussions, educational workshops, and acts as a feeder for local accelerator programs.  The SoCo Angels can help founders prepare for the next steps in their journey, including review of the investor deck and pitch narrative, general strategic advice, grants and regional capital opportunities, supporting local hiring and workspaces, and facilitating introductions to Board Advisors and other entrepreneurs.  The SoCo Angels team has experience that spans companies that are pre-revenue to those with billions in revenue, and is dedicated to supporting the technology “ecosystems” in Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Fremont and the surrounding Counties.  


Our mission is to connect and educate investors and entrepreneurs in the South Central Colorado region.
