CSR Angels

CSR Angels - helping the Aiken/Augusta startup ecosystem

Enjoyable article from the Augusta Chronicle this weekend, demonstrating the importance of capital as a link in the chain of development of an early stage ecosystem.

As "every piece of the chain" improves, education on how those links work together becomes key. What better way to understand how to access the nascent angel capital in our area than by coming to the "how to pitch" workshop this week?

Congratulations to CSR Angels on its impressive first year

Congratulations to CSR Angels for their recognition in the Aiken Standard this week. The group has had a very impressive first year.

Starting a new angel group is no small undertaking. Being able to "plug in" to an existing infrastructure of nearby groups makes it much easier. There aren't many angel groups that were able to make 12 investments in their first year - but as part of VentureSouth new groups can hit the ground running.
