Piranha Branding is an end-to-end solution that’s revitalizing the fragmented and often frustrating world of angel investing. It starts with our diverse investor “net”work, to whom entrepreneurs pitch their idea on our live audience show called the “Piranha Tank®”. 

From there, we provide ongoing support to both sides that other angel networks just don’t deliver - including due diligence, closing assistance and more.

Innovation is everywhere these days. And fortunately for American entrepreneurs, our nation is full of diverse networks of angel investors looking to cash in on this innovation. Their access to capital, deep pockets and extensive business knowledge are, more often than not, catalyst required to accelerate their path to success.

But for all the good they do for the “American Dream”, the angel investment marketplace is ripe with inefficiency. Just a few of the many pain points that both sides of the equation endure:

This is unfortunate, too, because our nation has never been more ripe with opportunity. All 50 states may have an innovation hub - but most lack resources and therefore do little to remedy these pain points.

There has to be a more efficient way to connect angels with entrepreneurs!

It’s time to dive into a new age of investing with Piranha Branding: a platform uniquely crafted to help entrepreneurs and angels be successful.  Our comprehensive solution brings together all stakeholders and parties responsible for building successful businesses into an ecosystem that gets early-stage companies the funding they need.

But we don’t stop there.  Piranha Branding provides key players with all of the ancillary services that go along with startup investing, including market research, due diligence, marketing, closing assistance, portfolio management, and access to banking, accounting, insurance, legal, and more.  It’s everything that a startup business - and their new investment partners - need to grow and thrive without the traditional wasted time and effort.

Rather than looking to tip the scales, we’re focused on moving the angel investment market forward as a whole.  With Piranha Branding, everyone wins:

Sustainability is at the core of our business in every sense of the word. Our focus is on promoting & supporting sustainable businesses - profitably. At Piranha Branding, it’s all about Profit for People and the Planet™.

In total, there are 5 primary elements of our solution that lend themselves to this mission:

All 5 of these elements are highly scalable.
Piranha Branding is ideal for a franchise model.

The Piranha Platform is the brainchild of two passionate entrepreneurs who share business ideals and just knew they would work together one day.  While working with other companies, the idea spawned between the two at an industry event; and soon after, the rest was history.  Let’s learn a little more about our visionaries!
