    The Lighthouse Fund is a committed capital, early stage fund formed by leading entrepreneurs and angel investors in the East Tennessee region. Although it is an early stage fund, the initiative is focused on existing start-ups that have made progress and assumed risk. The Lighthouse Fund will typically invest $100,000 to $150,000 as one of several participants in a syndicated deal valued at about $500,000.
