Let’s Start Something Big Together.

About Tri-Cities Angel Alliance

The mission of TCAA is to facilitate startup and business opportunity investments in the greater Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco area of Southeastern Washington State, known as the Tri-Cities. Investments are generally focused on local, Tri-Cities Startups but Regional Startups are always welcome to pitch and traditional business opportunities like business expansions, hard-money lending, and real estate projects are also welcome. Accredited Regional Investors, Angel Investors, and Venture Capital Firms are always welcome to attend.

Our members include accredited investors and serial entrepreneurs looking for interesting private business opportunities including startups, business expansions, and real estate opportunities.

TCAA does not directly invest in any business opportunities. Members form their own individual opinions and make their own individual investments.
