micro angel investors

about us

We are a diverse group of central Kentucky citizens interested in angel investing for early stage development or start-up companies. Our membership list consists of large investors, small investors, bankers, insurance agents, automotive dealers, real estate professionals, farmers, small business owners, health care professionals, retirees, lawyers, housewives, business consultants, trustees and entrepreneurs.

From this diverse wealth of experiences we feel qualified to make reasonable risk investments with the intent of both increasing investor wealth and helping grow the Kentucky economy. We manage ourselves through a nine member Board of Directors. Once each month, we invite one or two startup companies seeking investments to help them grow. The meetings are open to the public.

Our meeting audience is composed of LTVG members, their guests, and anyone else who wants to attend. Typically, one or two companies will present their investment opportunity. We encourage audience questions following the presentations. If you are interested in presenting as a startup company, becoming an LTVG member, or would like to attend a meeting, please feel free to give us a call.



LTVG is a limited liability company. Members own one or more (no more than five) membership units. The units have identical powers, preferences, limitations and relative rights and shall have one vote per unit. Each unit shall be $10,000 of which $1,000 is paid by each member as an initial subscription. The remainder of $9,000 is callable, from time to time, in varying unit sizes and times. Our current structure recommends a $250 call per quarter.

We enourage anyone interested in becoming a member to contact us here.

Presentations are arranged through the Elizabethtown Innovation Center. Typically, presentations are approximately 15 minutes in length with a subsequent Q & A period following. Unlike the well known "Shark Tank" television show, presentations are not critiqued during the presentation.

Our investment committee meets once each month. All previous presentations are considered for group investment at that time. If the committee decides to pursue an investment, a committee member will be assigned to conduct a due dilligence evaluation and subsequently make a recommendation regarding a group investment.

Please contact the Elizabethtown Innovation Center for information regarding presentations for your company.
