Heatgenie Closes $450k In “Series A” Funding
Austin-based, self-heating technology developer, HeatGenie, announced today that it has closed “Series A” funding in the amount of $450k. The investment came from angel investors led by the Houston and Central Texas Angel Networks.
HeatGenie began the fundraising process through the Texas Angel circuit, in late January. After first presenting to the Houston Angel Network, HeatGenie was invited to present to several other networks, including the North Texas Angel Network, the Concho Valley Angel Newtork (CVAN) and the Central Texas Angel Network (CTAN). The HeatGenie offering gained significant interest as a result of the cooperative efforts of the Texas angel groups. “This is a glowing example of how angel networks across Texas are syndicating promising new investment opportunities."
“We are very pleased and fortunate to have fully funded our “Series A” in this tough economic environment”
