Who We Are
VentureSouth is an early-stage venture firm that provides capital and expertise to Southeastern startups through our angel investment network and funds.
Since our inception with the Upstate Carolina Angel Network (UCAN) in 2008, VentureSouth has grown to include more than 400 active investors, making us one of the largest angel investment groups in the United States – and we have been named a Top 10 angel group three times.
To date, VentureSouth has invested over $50 million in more than 80 companies.
Our founders and partners combine complementary skills from diverse backgrounds. We have been engineers, builders, entrepreneurs, investors, consultants, board members, and educators. We share a collective passion for fostering the success of early-stage ventures in the Southeast.
We count on our fantastic operations team to keep all our ducks in a row. As the front line folks who keep up with our investors, pipeline, portfolio, logistics and marketing, these friendly faces keep VentureSouth flying in formation.
The VentureSouth team relies on a dedicated group of Market Directors who facilitate member development and meetings in local markets across our footprint. Our market leaders keep our network growing and make sure our distributed activities run smoothly.
