Our first fund will target tech startups in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. In conjunction with Northwest Florida Forward’s Regional Strategy for Economic Transformation, our second fund will focus exclusively on investments in the 13-counties comprising Northwest Florida. We are now accepting inquiries regarding investments into both funds and funding applications for startups will be available soon.
The Rise of the Southeast
A wealth of affordable human capital and more favorable business conditions are the key reasons that companies are moving significant operations to the Southeast. In parallel, many startups are forming to support these larger entities, but that’s only the beginning.
The Southeast is home to startups that are working to commercialize university research and military intellectual property as well as new businesses working to exploit opportunities in fields such as software, mobile, cloud computing, information technology, and cybersecurity, among others. However, one key factor is missing: There is simply not enough organized capital in the region to serve the growing number of new startups. Failure to provide adequate funding for deserving companies results in slower economic growth, fewer knowledge-based jobs, and lost opportunities for investors. TechFarms Capital was formed to capture this opportunity and ultimately produce significant returns for its investors.
