Jim Gunton says NJ Governor Murphy’s New Jersey Innovation Evergreen Fund is a terrific idea!
“This fund will reverse the trend of movement away from New Jersey. Talent goes where there are well-funded and promising companies. I have seen companies go where they are able to get funding. Well-funded companies attract the best people. Those companies are the most likely to succeed. Then you grow and exit, and create a self-perpetuating dynamic. … It is vital to the New Jersey economy — and exciting to watch it happen.” – Jim Gunton, Managing Partner, Tech Council Ventures
