According to NJEN, the organization of angel groups is a relatively recent development. Angels have become easier to find, and these groups enable the investors to pool their resources and invest more money in a greater number of deserving start-ups. NJEN has now made the angel groups easier to find by organizing a roundtable discussion featuring representatives of regional angel groups. The event will use NJEN’s unique "reverse venture fair” format, during which attendees will be able to meet individually with each of the representatives. Participants are even encouraged to bring their businesses’ executive summaries for review.
Moderated by Randy Harmon of New Jersey Small Business Development Centers, the panel will consist of representatives from the region’s leading angel groups, including Karen Griffith Gryga of Mid-Atlantic Angel Group Funds (www.magfund.com);
The event is sponsored by the Law Offices of Robert D. Frawley (64 Maple Avenue, Morristown, N.J. 07960). Supporting organizations include BioNJ, Einstein's Alley, Innovation Garden, Innovation NJ, the New Jersey Business Incubation Network, the New Jersey Institute of Technology Enterprise Development Center, the New Jersey Small Business Development Center (Rutgers), the New Jersey Technology Council, the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals in Healthcare and TechLaunch.
