Fellow VentureSouth Members,

When we started VentureSouth with the Upstate Carolina Angel Network in 2008, there was very little information available to guide angel group leaders. Fortunately, we found the Angel Capital Association (ACA) to help guide us on our way. Much of what has made VentureSouth one of the top angel groups in the U.S. today came from the best practices we learned through the ACA and relationships we formed with other members.

The Seed the Future Campaign is vitally important to ACA. We are on the cusp of raising the bar for angel investing worldwide with new initiatives in angel education, syndication, angel data analysis, and more. ACA cannot do this with operational income alone, and this campaign is critical to making all this happen.

We have ACA to thank for public policy and leadership around core issues like our Section 1202 tax advantages. Anyone in VentureSouth who has made just a few angel investments is benefitting with tens of thousands of dollars of tax savings.

ACA’s new Angel Investor Foundation is in the early stages of its Seed the Future Campaign, as outlined in this ambitious Case for SupportWe are asking VentureSouth members and friends to consider making a contribution to this important effort to support angel investing. And, of course, your contribution will be tax-deductible.

Thank you very much for considering a gift to support the important work of the ACA.
