Ritz Group President and CEO, Larry White, stated that seed-round funding is, and continues to be, the Achilles heel of Georgia’s private equity funding food chain. In the Valley and major cities, this GAP is fulfilled by Entrepreneurs and Investors exiting and taking lucrative lead seed rounds for new early stage companies. Yes, they are playing with “house money,” but mitigate risks by forming familiar teams consisting of ex-founders and syndicate partner teams with proven track records. Of course, we do some of this in Georgia, but need to close the GAP with more early stage lead Angel round investing. The Angel Club is designed to foster Angel investing collaboration and confidence. We believe this will lead to more funding engagements in early seed round companies. Creating more confident Angels will lead to funding more companies.
