NEXUS powers angel investment groups statewide.

The Florida Angel Nexus (“NEXUS”) powers angel investment groups statewide. We solve challenges common for these groups: organizing deal flow, coordinating due diligence, streamlining portfolio management, and providing broader context. We enable investors to invest in small groups of their own choosing and meet highly specialized goals while enjoying the efficiency of a large investment entity. Leveraging our extensive network of industry experts, NEXUS enables investigations to better understand the market, product, and execution risk of investment opportunities. Selected companies gain exposure to a large number of investors from angel groups across the state who co-invest to meet the company’s fundraising goals; the angel groups gain far more insights than they can generate on their own. It’s a win-win situation.

NEXUS's objective is to enable members to achieve higher returns with less risk than typical angel groups by combining Florida’s community resources, including our vast university systems, with the business acumen of NEXUS members and partners. The group strives to improve Florida’s funding environment and to become a prominent investment corridor that attracts, creates, and retains the best talent and high paying jobs for our state.

  • As Palm Beach County continues to expand its infrastructure to support startups, we intend to cultivate this strong momentum into long-term sustainability and growth, “Nexus Palm Beach will focus on connecting area accredited investors and serve as a gateway into Florida’s high-growth startup ecosystem."

  • We have had an outstanding experience with The Florida Angel Nexus team. The professionalism of the staff, the quality of the member events and the investor results were all first class. As s result of presenting at three chapter events in less than a month, we raised $300,000 affording us to exercise our FICPR matching benefit making it an $600,000 experience. We have since secured a permanent facility, purchased capital equipment and are preparing for our first full time hires fulfilling one of our strategic objectives - high tech / high wage job creation in Keystone Heights Florida. Thanks NEXUS !!!

  • The CEP has been focused on expanding access to capital for entrepreneurs and creating a vehicle by which local investors could participate. However, we doubted we could generate the pipeline to sustain an effort and the staffing to truly vet projects and investors alike. By joining NEXUS, we get the best of both worlds. Our investors have access to a steady pipeline of ventures and professional expertise in vetting while allowing us to grow a uniquely Ocala approach to this issue. This is a great partnership for our Ocala and for the Florida Angel Nexus.

  • Becoming a Nexus member has been a game-changer for me and my portfolio. Nexus connects me with Florida’s best and brightest entrepreneurs and investors and showcases the top early-stage companies in the state. It also provides a platform to educate communities on the merits of angel investing. It’s a fantastic organization.
