|TechPoint and HALO investors serve up angel funding for promising Hoosier entrepreneurs
INDIANAPOLIS (March 25, 2008) - Great ideas generally require expert guidance and patient capital to realize their full potential. They also require risk-taking on behalf of investors. Without these critical components, Indiana-based entrepreneurs may give up or financially collapse during their early-stage development.
Jim Jay, president and CEO of TechPoint, also serves as managing director of the HALO Capital Group.
Do I pay a fee to present?
No. There are no fees for an entrepreneur to apply or present.
Does HALO invest as a group? As a fund?
HALO does not invest as a group. Each member makes their own decision to invest and writes a check to the company.
What's the typical size of an investment?
It varies, of course. It depends on how attractive your company is. HALO can often raise $500k or more on its own. If you're a very attractive opportunity then one or more of our venture capital affiliates may decide to invest alongside us; that's when funding can grow to $1 M, $2M, or more.
Does HALO invest outside of Indiana?
No, not usually. We invest in deals close to our Indiana homes.
