Kelly Reeser Joins TechFarms Capital
as Managing Director

 
Setting a course for economic development conjures ideas of luring major manufacturers, creating jobs, and attracting new residents. These are undeniably important pieces and, for Kelly Reeser, it is also essential to think a bit smaller.

Reeser, who joined TechFarms Capital as co-managing director in January, said, “A key element of economic development is to bring in outside companies who do not have a presence in the community. Another piece is growing the existing industry/manufacturing base and the supporting workforce. But an often-overlooked piece is 'growing your own.' If communities pay attention to and invest resources into their entrepreneurs, they’ll grow your next big thing.”

Entrepreneurs are the key piece in Reeser’s economic career and the main focus of her next chapter, TechFarms Capital - an early-stage angel capital fund based in Panama City Beach, FL. Along with Steve Millaway, an engineer, inventor, and the founder of TechFarms, Reeser aims to change the entrepreneurial landscaping of the Southeast United States.
