Effort underway to have a large presence at upcoming ACA “Summit of Angel Investing”

One more committed individual can drop the registration fee for everyone else by $200 per person.

That’s according to Nancy Nabors of the Knoxville Chamber who is working with Lamont Price of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to recruit a delegation of Tennesseans for the Angel Capital Association’s (ACA) upcoming “Summit of Angel Investing.”

Scheduled for May 17-19 in Atlantic City, the event includes three days of quality content, interactive discussions, and vibrant networking to elevate angel investing experience. “Whether you are a new or experienced investor, angel group leader, or part of the broader community supporting entrepreneurs and early stage investments, you’ll learn the latest on trending topics and meet new people, all to help improve your outcomes,” ACA writes.

The effort to get more Tennesseans to attend the ACA Summit is part of a broader strategy to recruit more angel investors in the Volunteer State. We have previously reported on new initiatives on that front in Knoxville and Chattanooga. Also, under the “State Small Business Credit Initiative 2.0” for which the State of Tennessee is awaiting approval of its plan, new investors will be needed to leverage all of the available federal dollars.

Nabors reported late yesterday that 10 Tennesseans have committed to joining the delegation that will attend the ACA Summit. “If we bring 11 or more, ACA will reduce the registration fee for each person by $200. By attending as a TN delegation, we hope to create comradery for the event and beyond.”

Those interested in having a room at the conference hotel and being part of the delegation need to contact Price (lamont.price@tn.gov or 615/741-9301) or Nabors (nnabors@knoxvillechamber.com or 865/256-4620) by Monday.
