NEXUS powers angel investment groups statewide.
NEXUS powers angel investment groups statewide. We solve challenges common for these groups: organizing deal flow, coordinating due diligence, streamlining portfolio management, and providing a broader context. We enable investors to invest in small groups of their own choosing and meet highly specialized goals while enjoying the efficiency of a large investment entity.
NEXUS's objective is to enable members to achieve higher returns with less risk than typical angel groups by combining Florida’s community resources, including our vast university systems, with the business acumen of NEXUS members and partners. The group strives to improve Florida’s funding environment and to become a prominent investment corridor that attracts, creates, and retains the best talent and high paying jobs for our state.
+ WHAT WE DO FOR INVESTORS
NEXUS’ goal is for its members to achieve higher returns with less risk than typical angel investments by utilizing a model combining the business acumen of NEXUS members with Florida’s community resources – including the vast university system and regional economic development programs. For many angel investors, it’s also a way to give back to their community, to help build successful companies, and to participate in the satisfaction that comes from being involved in the entrepreneurial process. The Florida Angel Nexus looks for investment opportunities where mentoring, capital and member networks will take companies to the next level, resulting in NEXUS members investing in at least one of NEXUS's identified opportunities each year.
+ WHAT WE DO FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Fundraising can be an overwhelming process. NEXUS strives to reduce the barriers Florida entrepreneurs face moving from the idea stage to growth & sustainability. Our goal is wealth creation for our portfolio companies, their teams, and our investors. Screening and due diligence is necessary and can be time consuming. Expect the entire process to take at least 3 months. The timeframe depends on your venture’s readiness and when in our cycle you begin the process. Before getting started on your application, your team should discuss the company’s goals in order to decide what type of funding makes the most sense. Consider all of your funding options and their pros and cons.
