TiE Atlanta Angels, the angel investment group of TiE Atlanta, has invested over $4 million in investments across 15 startups across the Southeast.
Not industry-specific, TiE Atlanta Angels (TAA) has invested in companies focusing on biotech, healthcare products, tech-enabled laundry services, media tech, fintech, 3D printing design, genetic mapping, and cybersecurity tracking.
The fund partners with established and accredited investors to seek out legitimate deals that TiE Atlanta Angels can invest in. Also unique in its investment model, the fund does a lot of consistent investments, as opposed to focusing on a singular moonshot.
“This model has allowed our investors to grow a high-quality portfolio over a commitment of five years,” added JP James, co-chair of TAA, investor and founder of Hive Financial Systems. The fund has 67 angel investors.
Since its launch in July 2017, the angel group has worked on a disciplined investment model and has invested in companies seeking Seed through Series A funding. Through this model, TiE Atlanta Angels has become the fastest growing angel group in Southeast.
Recently, the organization worked with TiE Tampa to extend its investment reach. One of many startups, Tampa-based Harness received funding to continue developing its product and go-to-market strategy.
