Student Participation Is Important

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso — your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

In setting up a university angel group, the student experience is the primary objective.

To ensure the success of the group, set up a program for the students to provide investor and startup engagement.

Finance students can leverage their education by analyzing the startups applying to the group and performing diligence work.

Entrepreneurship students can bring their education to bear by diligencing the operations of the startup.

Both provide invaluable experience to the students as they work with real deals and discuss the results with investors who will make investment decisions.

Finance students can take the results of their work and use it in their search for a job after graduation.

Entrepreneurship students can take the lessons learned and use it in their efforts to start their own business.

Set up a program to track the students through the process and invite them to return to future angel group meetings to reconnect with their peers and the investors. 

Also, track the job placement and startups those students achieve to share with others. 

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
