Jefferson Corner Group Website
The Jefferson Corner Group website, though relatively new in angel investment financing, has a thorough rundown of articles about the group's set of goals and how to achieve them. The articles are well-written and informative enough to attract early-stage companies to consider seed investment application from the group. As JCG continues to develop its plans regarding investment application and membership requirements, the site has not fully discussed yet the requisites for those areas. Same goes with related news articles, upcoming events, annual activities, and link resources which are not accessible to browsers. With the overview of the group's mission however, it is clearly stated the fundamentals of start-up companies that JCG is looking for as well as the benefits and responsibilities of being a member-investor of the group. Profiles of JCG executives are also included in the site for further reference to interested entrepreneurs. For start-up companies and prospective members who plan to be part of JCG's growing number of investors and "investees," the Contact Us page contains the group's office location, phone, and fax numbers for further information.
