Duke Angel Network Presents its 2021 Associate Class
The Duke Angel Network (DAN) Associate Program brings together some of the University’s brightest minds from graduate schools across Duke University—the Fuqua School of Business, Pratt School of Engineering, School of Medicine, School of Law, Duke University Health System, and more. DAN Associates are given the opportunity to learn about venture capital by participating in every aspect of the investment process, including deal sourcing, screening, and diligence. They also receive training on topics relevant to venture capital like term sheets and cap tables. Associates complete our program with experience that would be difficult to obtain anywhere else in graduate school.
Associates are with us for two years but some stay longer, and our Associate Alumni are a part of the DAN family for life. Over the next few weeks, we will share Associate spotlights on our LinkedIn page to highlight different perspectives on why Associates chose to join DAN and what they’ve gotten out of the experience.
2021 Associate Class
Ahead of the Associate spotlights, we’d like to introduce you to our entire 2021 Associate class:
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.
