Who we are

Silicon Pastures is a group of angel investors who meet monthly to assess business plan proposals and share due diligence on possible transactions.

The group prefers to invest in companies that use technology to solve problems.  The group also favors companies that use technology to organize, optimize, and accelerate business processes.

Silicon Pastures hosts monthly investment presentations at upscale  Milwaukee-area restaurants.  Each presentation consists of one or more pre-screened investment opportunities. After the entrepreneurs have made their pitches members of Silicon Pastures meet privately to discuss the viability of the investment.  Each member makes an individual decision whether or not to invest.

Export Initiative

To find out how Silicon Pastures can help your company find distribution partners in South Korea, call 414.455.3808 or email teresa (at) siliconpastures (dot) com.

Why should Manufacturers learn how to export?

According to the U.S. International Trade Commission, exporters enjoy higher valuations, higher productivity, faster growth and higher wages than their non-exporting peers.

As angel investors, we want our portfolio companies to grow significantly after we invest.

One way we can help our portfolio companies grow is by introducing them to channel distribution partners who want to resell their goods.

As long as we are helping our own portfolio companies find exporting partners in South Korea, we can help other U.S. companies find distribution partners as well.
