Archangel is a global movement, platform, and community. We believe that mission-driven entrepreneurs are modern-day superheroes. We are the ones responsible for solving the world’s biggest challenges.
Our dream is to gift forward $1 Billion as grants, loans, gifts, donations, prizes, and angel investment from our Archangel Fund in the next 25 years to create exponential change.
Our mission is to seek out “Archangels” – superhero mission-driven entrepreneurs who want to change the world, provide them with the tools and resources they need to grow (including funding, wisdom, etc), and connect them together for support and peer sharing (both virtually and through immersive experiences).
Building a Tribe
We use Seth Godin’s definition of Tribe when talking about our Archangel community. From his book entitled “Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us”, Godin defines a tribe as any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea. He stipulates that “a group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way in which to communicate”.
In 2012 Archangel founder Giovanni Marsico had a dream to change the world by seeking out other mission-driven, superhero entrepreneurs who wanted to do the same. The grand vision was to start a network, community, and tribe of people like him – those who wanted to create massive impact – and provide them with the resources, funding, and connections they needed to achieve their missions.
With a background in marketing and event production, and superpowers in connecting, curating, and talent scouting, he began sharing his vision with others.
