Thriving startup ecosystems require many things, including startup funding at the appropriate stage. In addition to the capital that angel investors and venture capitalists provide, they represent a wealth of expertise, experience and wisdom. 

JAXCoE created semi-annual Northeast Florida Angel Summits to connect local investors with innovative startups at seed/early growth stages. Four or five qualified startups pitch their company or idea to an invitation-only audience. 

NEFL Angel Summits are investor-only events. If you are interested in learning more about investment opportunities in local startups, please email us at 


In January 2016, JAXCoE and the Northeast Florida STEM2 Hub partnered with Florida Angel Nexus (NEXUS) and FAN Fund to establish a local NEXUS chapter. 

Fundraising can be an overwhelming process. NEXUS strives to reduce the barriers Florida entrepreneurs face moving from the idea stage to growth and sustainability. Their goal is wealth creation for their portfolio companies, their teams, and their investors.
