Offline vs. Online Meetings

In running a university angel network, consider both offline and online meetings for the members. 

Online meetings allow you to run education sessions, screening meetings, and pitch sessions along with diligence follow-up.

Since the members need not travel to campus, these can be short half-hour calls or longer ones. 

These meetings can be set up during the workweek and recorded as well for those who can’t attend the live session.

Offline meetings provide face-to-face interaction with the students.

One of the main benefits of an angel network is the education experience the student receives.

Face-to-face meetings provide better opportunities for this experience.

You can run social events around athletic events, business plan competitions, entrepreneurship days, and more.

Consider two major offline events per year, one in the fall and one in the spring.

Align with other activities on campus to drive a larger turnout.
