The Murphy Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of North Texas is collaborating with the Denton community to launch a new investment group in the North Texas region.

The Denton Angel Investment Group — whose founders include several successful entrepreneurs, two CEOs, a seasoned corporate attorney and the leader of UNT’s Murphy Center — was recently created to provide investment and strategic advisory support to early-stage ventures within Texas, emphasizing the Denton area.

“Between our university and the Denton community at large, we have a rich environment for startups to access creativity, technology, educational support, economic growth and capital,” says Jon McCarry, (third from left in photo), senior director of the Murphy Center. “We are looking to support the group’s growth, assist entrepreneurs and help investors access opportunities.”
