KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the face of private accredited investing rapidly evolving, the Angel Capital Association (ACA), the world's leading professional and trade association for angel investors, is offering individual accredited investors significant savings to hone deal flow and best practices. Savings include a blended membership and 2014 ACA Summit fee, which reduces annual membership costs by more than 85 percent.

ACA, with nearly 200 groups and 10,000 member angels, provides angels access to co-investors, professional development events, deal flow tools, resources for portfolio success, and the ability to influence public policy.

"At no time in angel investment history has it been more important for individual investors to join ACA," said David Verrill, chairman of ACA's board of directors. "With the countless new ways to invest, and more angels entering the startup market, we encourage individual investors to join other angels to help increase investment success. ACA members benefit from sharing the experience, best practices, and intellectual know-how of other sophisticated investors that enables finding, vetting and investing in the best deals."

The landscape for angel investing is changing with the proliferation of accredited crowdfunding platforms and syndicates that allow individuals to invest in new and different ways.

"Now more than ever is the time to join experienced peers in the new world of angel investing - by joining ACA and attending the 2014 ACA Summit."

ACA individual member benefits include everything from invitations to member-only events to informative publications to discounts and access to insurance products and services.
