    Eastern NY Angels (ENYA) primary goal is to provide seed funding and mentorship to early stage companies while creating jobs in the Eastern Region of New York State commonly known as Tech Valley. The Eastern NY Angels can trace its roots back to 2001 when four local entrepreneurs formed the Tech Valley Angel Network or TVAN as it was known. TVAN was an affiliation of high net-worth individuals who met monthly to review potential investments in early stage companies in the Tech Valley. In 2005 Center for Economic Growth (CEG) assumed administrative responsibility for the operation of TVAN from the original founders. ENYA is a member managed fund organized as a Delaware LLC. The fund is composed of Limited Partners or Members who are the investors. There is a five person Management Committee that directs the activities of the fund. Companies seeking funding are invited to 'pitch' to the membership at monthly meetings. The average investment is $150,000.
