In order to be an Angel Investor, an individual has to be accredited. This is a limit built into federal law that is based on wealth. However, if you intend to build your investor muscles and you have a mission to make the world better, you can use a tool called Donar Advised Funds to create your own Venture Capital Fund, which invests in For-Profit companies that address the issue you are trying to fix.
This allows anyone to contribute to investing in startups that address the world’s social or ecological problems.
