Atlanta Technology Angels, one of the nation’s top angel investing networks, experienced one of its best years in 2014, achieving a total of $13.3 million in funding and formal syndication, and growing 66 percent over last year. This success was a result of ten new deal investments, and five follow-up funding rounds.

The group also expanded its presence in Georgia to include a Gwinnett Angels chapter, created in response to the growing number of startups and investors located outside of the city’s perimeter.

“We’re extremely pleased with our performance in 2014, a year in which we continued to seek out and fund remarkable companies,” said Bernice Dixon, President and Chairman of the ATA. “It was a year that enabled us to expand our footprint in the Southeast—as well as in the national angel investment community as a whole—positioning us for strong growth in the
years ahead.”
