Welcome to the Billiken Angel Network. Our goal as investors is to provide infusions of expertise and capital to firms that show promise to make a difference for our economy and our region. A 2015 HALO Report identified the Billiken Angels as one of the top 3 angel groups in the Plains States for the number of deals done from 2010-2015.
We are willing to look at firms in all industries and we look at firms at all stages, not just start-ups. Our goal as a network is to make a difference through education and advice to all the current and future businesses in the region. We draw on an unmatched set of resources including SLU’s Entrepreneurship Center, the Habitat for Neighborhood Business, SLU’s nationally ranked Entrepreneurship Program, the John Cook School of Business, and the other resources of Saint Louis University.
BAN invests in firms within a 100-mile radius of St. Louis, Missouri. Everyone is welcome to apply for consideration. BAN does not require that firms or entrepreneurs have current or prior ties to Saint Louis University. But if you do have SLU DNA, please check this page out.
