A new micro venture investment fund launched in Kansas City last week is targeting local, regional and national technology and science startups for funding.
The fund, run by Angel Capital Group, is targeting $1 million to $5 million in capital to invest.
This isn’t ACG’s first funding effort in Kansas City. The organization has a chapter dedicated entirely to the Kansas City region, and has a history of investing in seven different regional companies, including Innara Health, ABPathfinder, TVAX Biomedical and Venture360. ACG’s area chapter has operated since summer 2012.
The investor group tapped Shane Spencer, an area consultant and portfolio manager, to be the fund’s general manager.
“It is an exciting time for this chapter and Angel Capital Group as they recommit to Kansas City through the transition to a fund model which will allow us to better support the entrepreneurs, startups and investors in our region,” Spencer said in a news release.
The announcement comes on the heels of Angel Capital Group announcing a merger last year with RAIN Source Capital of Minneapolis, creating a national syndicate of angel groups and funds.
