Angel Investors – Quantified Fund

Seed Capital for companies worth the investment

Today’s angel investors are more savvy than ever. Not long ago, due diligence was conducted through a detailed analysis and survey conducted with the entrepreneur. Today, Noospheric believes true due diligence requires working in the company environment for at least a few months. Our investment model requires at least 3 months of coaching and/or consulting before we make a capital investment. This ensures that we have explored all facets of the business opportunity and more importantly that we have analyzed the potential of the management team – something that is almost impossible to find on paper.


We love entrepreneurs and fostering entrepreneurship and those that work with us tend to love us too. Here’s what some of our past clients and entrepreneurs say about working with Noospheric.

Noospheric has provided support to me throughout my entrepreneurship career both in my current company, StudySoup as well as my previous endeavors. ​Jacques has provided a range of advisory support from pitch practice, to hiring the right talent and most importantly recently for us, bringing on investors. I’m a huge fan of ​Noospheric!
Sieva Kozinsky, Study Soup
Since Noospheric’s involvement with our company, we were able to transform our one product company to a business that can capture investment and become an industry leader.
Chris Herbert, TrackR (formerly Phone Halo)
