Entrepreneurs create companies that can create jobs or even change the world. But to do any of that, first, they need capital — money to get them started.
That often happens when so-called angel investors decide to take a chance on a budding company. And, now, in Arizona, those angel investors have a little more incentive to do that.
Gov. Doug Ducey recently signed into a law a bill that allocated $10 million back into the Angel Investor Tax Credit program. That means, if you’re a certified investor in Arizona, you get a tax credit of up to 35 percent when you invest in a local tech company.
