Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) February 26, 2015 – Angel Capital Group (ACG), a leading national angel investor network, is proud to announce that it has partnered with the TriState Angel Investor Group (TSAIG) to expand its syndicate of angel funds. TSAIG officially opened its fund to angel investments in January of 2015. The fund seeks early state, private equity companies for investment across a broad market of technology enabled companies.
Eric Dobson, CEO of ACG, elaborated on the partnership saying “Angel Capital Group is rapidly becoming a national syndicate of angel funds. We believe this is the time for a national brand for angel investing.” Dobson added, “We provide the best of both worlds by curating local and regional deals and providing our investors with access to a proprietary national deal flow.” ACG has been investing in startup companies for eight years, has 36 total investments in 26 companies in its portfolio. Dobson concluded, “We are seeking local deals from around the market to provide access to national capital and expertise. We expect to form and aggregate many more funds over the next five years to create a truly national, fully syndicated network of funds.”
Mick Fosson, General Manager of TSAIG added, “One of the challenges for regional angel investment groups, like our Tri State Angel Investment Group, is being able to access enough high quality dealflow to allow the group’s fund(s) to be sustainable. By partnering with the Angel Capital Group, a national dealflow pipeline becomes easily available. Investment in high quality deals provides more opportunities for increasing the size of the regional fund(s) that can then be utilized for more local investments. We view this as a true win-win partnership.”
