City of Chandler Partners on PHX East Valley Angel Investor Initiative and Workshop Series
The City of Chandler, East Valley Partnership, Arizona Tech Investors and other area partners have embarked on a new initiative in hopes of better serving our regional business community. The
PHX East Valley Angel Investor Initiative was formed to catalyze economic growth by raising awareness of the importance of angel investing and enhancing access to early-stage funding for local tech startups.
We are seeking individuals who meet accredited investor criteria and are interested in becoming angel investors. A free workshop series will be held to introduce the skills needed to start investing. The first workshop is scheduled for Oct. 4 from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the ASU Chandler Innovation Center, 249 E. Chicago St. in Downtown Chandler.
A 250,000-square-foot, Class A office building will soon break ground at the intersection of Loop 101 and Loop 202. Named
The Offices at Chandler Viridian, the project is part of the 25-acre, mixed-use Chandler Viridian development
that also includes a Cambria Hotel & Suites, retail offerings at Chandler Viridian Primegate, Broadstone Fashion Center apartments and a pedestrian promenade to Chandler Fashion Center mall.
Construction is slated to start later in 2017 and be completed in late 2018.
