CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Coastal Bend Business Innovation Center (CBBIC) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi hosted a luncheon for potential angel investors on Sept. 19.

During the luncheon, Jamie Rhodes, founder of the Austin, Texas-based Central Texas Angel Network, gave a presentation on “The State of New Venture Investing” in which he described various sources of new venture funding with emphasis on angel investors before taking questions from the audience. He was followed by four CBBIC clients who gave brief description of their business products and their applications to real world challenges. These applications included medical, communication, renewable energy, and water purification technologies. Presenters were client companies Ergo Voice, InnerGeo, Plasma Technologies Inc., and Hydro Enviro Clean.

Among those in attendance were Corpus Christi Mayor Joe Adame, and, from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, President Flavius Killebrew; Dr. Moustafa Abdelsamad, dean of the College of Business; Dr. Luis Cifuentes, associate vice president for Research and Scholarly Activity and dean of Graduate Studies; Dr. Trent Hill, vice president For Institutional Advancement; and Dr. Frank Pezold, dean of the College of Science and Engineering.

The University’s College of Business established the Coastal Bend Business Innovation Center in 2009 to stimulate job growth by encouraging entrepreneurial economic development of companies that, once established, are committed to remaining in the Coastal Bend.
