About Duke Angel Network
Duke Angel Network (DAN) leverages the Duke network to help: (1) our investors find innovative early-stage companies with great teams, and (2) our entrepreneurs find access to smart capital to fuel their growth.
Our mission is to support the global Duke entrepreneurial community with an angel investing platform and co-investment fund (the Duke Innovation Fund) that engage and leverage the unparalleled Duke network. The strength of the Duke community across the world offers a uniquely powerful opportunity for networking and guidance from industry experts and successful entrepreneurial leaders.
Duke Angel Network engages and matches experienced Duke alumni with portfolio companies to support their growth and success. Our members invest in companies in which a founder, executive, board member, or major investor is a current/former Duke student, employee, or parent. They then work actively to connect their portfolio companies with the Duke network—and beyond—to foster collaboration and further success.
