The Florida Angel Nexus (“NEXUS”) supports a growing community of accredited investors, funds, trusts, and family offices interested in the early-stage venture asset class and investing in businesses scaling quickly in Florida.

In partnership with local active investors and community leaders, new chapters are forming statewide.  With existing infrastructure, we can launch chapters based on a location, an industry cluster (examples: health innovation, advanced manufacturing, and “modeling, simulation, & training + ed tech + virtual & augmented reality”), and affiliation (university, research institute, etc.).
