Angel Investment Group Founder Praises Atmore Roots, ‘Crash-and-Burn’ Lessons

MOBILE, Alabama – Of his 59 years, Jim Corman spent the first 53 in Atmore, happily starting telecommunications companies, selling them and starting over.

When he and his wife Jane found themselves empty-nesters six years ago, however, the serial entrepreneur and independent angel investor could think of no valid reason not to take a part-time teaching position in entrepreneurship at Auburn University.

A series of fortunate events and meetings have since inspired Corman to help give the Alabama business community that which it’s long-lacked and desperately needs: an statewide investor network respected across the Southeast for its depth and breadth of both intellectual and financial capital.
