Leslie Jump is the Founder of Startup Angels, an organization that promotes angel investing in cities throughout the U.S.  As part of this mission, Leslie has also created an annual conference called The Angel Summit.  In October, the third Angel Summit will be held in Chattanooga, TN.  Previous gatherings were held in Dallas and Madrid.

On this week's episode, Leslie will explain why angel investors are so crucial to sustaining a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem. In today's startup world, founders and investors need not come from Silicon Valley.  Both money and talent can be found in abundance in small and medium sized cities everywhere.
