The Two Keys to Success
Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
A university angel network is a group of investors formed around the affinity to a university.
The primary goal of it is to provide student experience and job placement.
Making money from the investments is secondary.
There are two keys to successfully launching an angel network at a university.
The first is a dedicated faculty member focused on running the student education program.
The faculty member sets the curriculum, runs the course, and works with the angel group on the students' participation in analyzing the deals.
This makes for a strong educational experience as the students work with real investors, real investment opportunities, and real dollars invested.
The second key to success is five check-writing angel investors.
Investors who participate regularly to view the deals, diligence them, and invest.
The investors provide key mentorship roles to the students.
Before launching an angel network at your university, line these two up first.
