Other Headlight News!

We would like to share some exciting news with you. We are expanding Birmingham Angels to NY City. We will partner with Mr. Joel Wolh, an active advocate for the startup ecosystem and early-stage companies. Joel will serve as the President of the NY group. We have learned that there are a significant number of investors in the NYC area that are very interested in quality deals from Michigan and the potential returns they can bring to their investment portfolio. 

We are fortunate that Joel has a pipeline for these investors. The NY group will be separate and independent under the Birmingham Angels brand and be an integral part of the Birmingham Angels national syndication.

It will allow us to expand our reach, building larger syndication, and bring more capital to deploy into our deals. We expect the group to be fully active by September.
