Frazier Deeter monitoring service hooks up with angel capital group

FD Venture Farm, the venture launched earlier this year by accounting firm Frazier & Deeter to track financial metrics at start-up companies, has allied with the Angel Capital Association to market itself to the latter's members. ACA investors will get broad access to the FD Venture team's metrics, interviews and reports on the companies in which they have invested or might invest.

“FD Venture Farm is a unique business monitoring platform that will both facilitate the monitoring of ACA member portfolio companies and intelligently expose interesting companies from across the country to our ACA members,” said Marianne Hudson, Executive Director of ACA. “Through FD Venture Farm, ACA members will be able to leverage an independent source of information and allow them to access opportunities beyond their geographic footprint.”

If they can successfully address a few issues, the chances of getting funded can be greatly enhanced. The FD Venture Farm service will help us keep in touch with these companies as they gain traction and become more suited to our investment profile.”
