President of New Mexico Angels
Managing Director of New Mexico Start Up Factory LLC
Mr. Chavez currently serves at the President of New Mexico Angels; a local Angel investment group of over 60 accredited investors, which he is also an active investor. Since becoming President, the Angels have seen an increase of over 100% funding of investment deals in new companies. The Angels are now leading investment deals, rather than following venture capitals into them.
Mr. Chavez has created technology showcase forums which allow Angel technology partners, Los Alamos National Lab, Sandia National Laboratories, and the University of New Mexico, the opportunity to present technologies available for licensing to Angel members and guests.
