NO/LA Angel Network (NO/LAAN), the fastest growing network in the world has officially been chosen to host the national Angel Capital Association’s Angel Insight Exchange, November 9-10.
The group’s mission is to help drive economic development and create jobs statewide. They have grown to 114 members and counting, 46 members higher than the average membership size of an angel group in America.
NO/LA Angel Network has invested over $2 million in local companies statewide including Servato, MicroBiome, SmartPak and MobileQubes.
The group was chosen to host the conference because of the unprecedented growth of the group over the last 18 months as well as the buzz around New Orleans’ burgeoning entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The Angel Insight Exchange will bring seasoned angel group leaders and investors from across the US and Canada to New Orleans to continue to expand their knowledge about angel investing.
“This year’s Angel Insight Exchange is unique in that it will be structured more informally as a meet up so that members will get more intensive networking and roundtable discussion opportunities in order to share experiences and best practices, while learning more about New Orleans’ entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Marianne Hudson, executive director of Angel Capital Association. “But, of course, everyone is also looking forward to sampling the unique culture, food, fun and music that New Orleans has to offer.”
