September was a very busy month for VentureSouth. We made a lot of exciting announcements!
VentureSouth is excited to announce their newest market, VentureSouth Triangle, in The Research Triangle area of North Carolina. VentureSouth has invested in 15 companies in the region and the group already includes many investors who live or work in the Triangle. Responding to requests from those participants to meet in person regularly, VentureSouth is formally launching the Triangle market– its 15th local investor group.
VentureSouth is excited to announce that it has launched RollingSouth, a Rolling Fund powered by AngelList and VentureSouth. RollingSouth is the first “rolling fund” – an innovative subscription investment fund created by AngelList – affiliated with VentureSouth. The fund will invest alongside VentureSouth in early-stage technology companies in the Southeast. Unlike traditional angel funds, RollingSouth is being raised publicly. Anyone, not just VentureSouth members, can invest in the fund through AngelList. VentureSouth believes this is the first Rolling Fund closely affiliated with an angel investment group, and a rare fund covering technology companies in the southeast.
