UNT entrepreneurship center joins Denton’s new Angel Investment Group


The Murphy Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of North Texas is partnering with the Denton community to launch a new investment group in North Texas.

The Denton Angel Investment Group – whose founders include several successful entrepreneurs, two CEOs, a seasoned corporate attorney and the leader of UNT’s Murphy Center – was recently created to provide investment and strategic advisory support to early-stage ventures within Texas, emphasizing the Denton area.

“Between our university and the Denton community at large, we have a rich environment for startups to access creativity, technology, educational support, economic growth and capital,” said Jon McCarry, a UNT alumnus and senior director of the Murphy Center. “We are looking to support the group’s growth, assist entrepreneurs and help investors access opportunities.”

Some of the founding members are:

·      Marshall Culpepper, CEO of Kubos, which develops satellite flight and mission control software

·      Mark Cieri, CEO of QV Partners LLC, which offers commercialization services for innovative technologies

·      Jeff Dodd, a corporate attorney with Hunton Andrews Kurth
