TCA Stresses Mixers, New Website

The Tech Coast Angels is stressing its mixer program, seed investment efforts, and a new website, as it kicks off a 2010 program, according to the angel investing group. According to the Tech Coast Angels' Richard Sudek, Chairman of the TCA, the group is looking to hold bi-monthly mixers which will help entrepreneurs connect with its angel investors, after a successful mixer in late 2009. The group also said it is focusing on its SeedTrack program, which is specifically focused on seed stage funding and extensive mentoring. The angel group also mentioned a web site design as part of its initiatives this year. The group announced today that it has named the incoming Presidents of its area networks, with Steve Flaim in San Diego, John Glanville and Jeff Kurfess in Santa Barbara, Stu Roberts in Orange County, Scott Sangster in Los Angeles, and John Tillquist in the Inland Empire. The TCA is the biggest angel investment group in Southern California, and is among the largest nationally.
