    The Inception Micro Angel Fund, LLC (IMAF) is a group of member-managed, seed stage, $2 million Angel capital fund designed to capitalize on the growth in entrepreneurial activity and venture financing primarily in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina, greater North Carolina, and in selective areas of Virginia and South Carolina. The first fund, IMAF-TRIAD I, ($2.0 million in capital) invests in emerging, high growth companies that are typically at the start-up stage, or one step beyond start-up, in the process of selecting a management team, and have founder and/or 'friends and family' money invested in the company. The fund typically invests between $25,000 and $100,000 per company and obtains a company board seat. The second fund, IMAF-TRIAD II, also sized at $2 million, started considering investments in June 2010. Other IMAF funds that are area specific to North Carolina include IMAF-West, IMAF-East, IMAF-Cape Fear, and IMAF-Charlotte.
