Calling all entrepreneurs and accredited investors: The Southern Colorado start-up ecosystem is gaining momentum.
The Southern Colorado Angels Group (“SoCo Angels”) is a newly established network of accredited investors that make investments in early-stage technology companies. The network was created by a group of experienced entrepreneurs, business professionals, and supporting organizations located in Southern Colorado. The SoCo Angels are looking to foster and develop new businesses, new ideas, and new entrepreneurs located in Pueblo, Fremont, and El Paso Counties and the surrounding areas.
Entrepreneurship in Southern Colorado has a rich history that dates to the mid-1800s. Notable entrepreneurs include Charles and William Bent, who built a trading post on the Santa Fe Trail in 1833, John Thatcher, who founded the First National Bank of Colorado in 1871, and John D. Rockefeller, who invested in the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company in 1903. The SoCo Angels are looking to continue in this pioneering spirit by supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs.
The SoCo Angels will host a variety of events, including company pitch nights, local networking events, educational workshops, and will act as a feeder for locally run accelerators and incubator programs. The group will assist early-stage companies by providing them access to information, advisors, and capital. The club is open to accredited investors (that can be located anywhere) interested in meeting unique, early-stage investment opportunities. The club has already hosted some great companies in 2021 including: ActiveArmour, Barn Owl Drone Services, MODL Outdoors, Laborjack, Bravrr, and F3tch.
