FORT COLLINS -- CSU Ventures, the technology transfer and commercialization agent for Colorado State University, announced it has formed a partnership with Rockies Venture Club (RVC) – one of the leading angel investor networks in the nation – to begin hosting educational and other events.
RVC, which already has an active Fort Collins chapter and a relationship with the Innosphere incubator, will offer educational events at CSU Ventures’ new offices at 2537 Research Blvd. every other month.
The classes will be open to RVC members and guests and selected CSU Ventures staff and founders of CSU-related startup companies.
The next event is set for July 1.
“Most startup companies need more capital than can be provided by founders, family or friends and often angel investors to provide the capital required to launch and grow the business enterprise,” said Todd Headley, CSU Ventures president.
“Establishing this partnership benefits the growing number of startup companies spinning out of CSU.”
“Rockies Venture Club is excited to be collaborating with CSU Ventures to boost the engagement of the investment community in Northern Colorado and to further economic development throughout Colorado as a whole,” said Dave Harris, RVC director of operations.
“Our two organizations share common philosophies and missions, as we both aim to foster entrepreneurial growth and yield innovation that will improve the Colorado landscape. This partnership will succeed in furthering our state as a major site for entrepreneurial and investment activity.”
