Accelerating Technology Innovation


When you join WINGS you become part of a unique community that is a hub of medical technology expertise for screening investment opportunities, networking, and mentorship. WINGS Angels benefit from increased deal flow, rigorous screening and the best opportunities for a good return to investors.


Angel investors interested in medical technology are invited to become WINGS angel investors. To become a WINGS Angel, investors and partners must be accredited, see US Securities and Exchange Commission for definition, and provide modest annual fees. WINGS Angels benefit from attending investor meetings each quarter, during which two to four high quality pre-selected opportunities are presented, and access to educational and networking events throughout the year.

"When we first conceived the concept of WINGS - focused peer-support of new and serial entrepreneurs, backed by a strong screening committee, guided and supported by WBBA, working closely with U of W and local business leaders across all disciplines, graciously being provided access to numerous Rolodexes of successful partners and friends - we believed we were onto something that would have the potential to help the local medical device and life science community to bring new and exciting therapies and treatments to an ever increasing patient population in need. What we didn't expect was that the enthusiasm of the greater Northwest life science community to showcase new medical devices and healthcare-associated business ideas, the constantly growing interest of life science angel investors, and the passionate work of WINGS members and teams would turn the not-for-profit organization WINGS into a leading organization to help enable medical device and life science innovation at an unforeseen scale beyond its originally intended local reach."
