University Angel Network vs. Traditional Angel Network
Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
The university angel network has similarities and differences to a traditional angel network.
They both consist of a group of investors interested in funding startups.
They both want to make a return on their investment.
They both want to socialize with others.
They differ in several ways:
The university angel network puts the give back to the university as their first priority.
Providing a student experience and job placement for the student is primary.
The university angel network has a built-in target audience of anyone associated with the university.
Traditional angel networks come together because they live in the same city.
The university angel network can tap into the university entrepreneurship and finance programs and startups accelerators for support.
Traditional angel networks must look for local programs to partner with.
The university angel network must work within the rules and regulations of the university.
The traditional angel network has no restraints beyond SEC regulations.
It’s important to understand the differences before joining either a university angel group or a traditional one.
