“We’d like to get the word out that the ATA is looking at investment opportunties outside of Atlanta,” Jenn Pratt, who handles PR for the group with Carabiner Communications, said.

The ATA joined Cowtown Angel Network and Central Texas Angel Network and Golden Seeds in a $3 million investment in Austin-based Wisegate,an innovative IT research service founded in 2011.

Here at the TechJournal, we’ve noticed that a number of Angel groups are forming syndicates with other angel groups and early-stage venture capital firms to do somewhat larger than usual deals.

Using a crowdsourcing model

Through its service qualified senior technology professionals share information without the bias of analysts, vendors, media or advertisers.

Using a crowdsourcing model and advanced algorithms, Wisegate gives technology professionals trusted, timely, relevant and affordable access to the   collective knowledge and experience of their peers.

Wisegate membership is available to senior IT professionals working for companies that do not sell IT products or services, and all applicants are screened to ensure they meet strict membership guidelines.
