Triangle Angel Partners (TAP) is an Angel Fund formed to invest in early-stage companies in and around North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park. The Research Triangle Park is home to more than 170 global companies, including IBM, GSK, Syngenta, RTI International, Lenovo, SAS, Credit Suisse, and Cisco, that foster a culture of technical and scientific advancement and competitive excellence. RTP is located between three major universities: Duke University in Durham, North Carolina State University in Raleigh, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
TAP is a group of more than 40 angel investors in the high tech and life sciences industries, interested in investing their time, analysis and money into early life cycle companies. TAP members are executives, PhDs, successful entrepreneurs and professional investors.
TAP members give companies more than just capital; they also provide counseling, mentoring and access to an extensive network of potential investors, customers, strategic partners and management talent. TAP is also unique because they share deal flow with other venture capital affiliates throughout North Carolina, southern Virginia, and northern South Carolina.
The value of the geographic innovation ecosystem results in a vast technology-based region with strong industry clusters creating networks of “shared advantage” that leverage the key strengths of local business, universities and other research institutions. North Carolina is ranked second for “The Most Innovative State in America” and TAP plans to capitalize on early stage leaders.
