Angel Group Gives Luis Villalobos Award

The Angel Capital Association, a national association for angel investors, said Wednesday that it has awarded the Luis Villalobos Award to a company, for being the most innovative angel backed company from its members. According to the ACA, it has awarded the special recognition to Ann Arbor, Michigan-based RetroSense Therapeutics, a biotech developing life-enhancing gene therapies to restore vision to patients suffering from blindness. The ACA's award is named after Tech Coast Angels founder Luis Villalobos, who passed away in 2009. The ACA began giving away the award in 2010. Villalobos was also a founder of the Angel Capital Association.
