Our Business Angels, corporate members, portfolio startups, partners and privileged ecosystem contacts form the Angels Santé Family.

A close-knit family : mutual support, feedback,
multiple connections. We organize pitches, sector-specific events, workshops & roundtables, and exclusive networking events so that our companies and members can meet, exchange ideas and create synergies. We believe in the power of the collective, and in making the right connections in France, Europe and the US (with Angels Santé USA).

Based in Boston, this group is aimed at French-speaking investors living in the US who want to support French healthcare startups.

Health is one of the major challenges of the twenty-first century. Ensuring a significant improvement in the quality and effectiveness of care and treatment while containing costs for the community is a fundamental objective for all governments. Healthcare start-ups are providing innovative solutions to these problems and Angels Santé is proud to be part of these efforts thanks to the support of its Corporate and Individual members.
