More than 700 angel investors will come to Philadelphia next spring for the 2016 Angel Capital Association (ACA) Summit. The ACA is calling it the biggest assembly of angel investors in the world.
The ACA chose Philadelphia because of “the coordinated support of its angels, early stage investors and regional partners including Select Greater Philadelphia and Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeast Pennsylvania,” according to the release.
Add the ACA to the list of national tech conferences that are descending on Philly in the coming months, including WordCampUS, the Open Hardware Summit and the JS.Geo conference.
