Angel Investment Group Joins Forces With Mays Business School

Mays Business School at Texas A&M University has announced an operational agreement between their Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship (CNVE) and The Aggie Angel Network (AAN). The AAN is a private, not-for-profit investor network that links young entrepreneurial ventures with capital from early-stage investors; commonly called “Angel Investors.”

The university’s news site described how the two organization will work together.

“Under the agreement, CNVE will provide operational and programmatic support to AAN and its membership of individual and institutional Angel Investors,” Mays Business Online said. “AAN will continue to be managed by an independent board of directors, who have named CNVE Director Blake Petty to concurrently serve as executive director of the Aggie Angel Network, in an ex-officio role.”

Petty, speaking to Mays Business Online, said that he was excited for the outcome of the partnership

“We’re fortunate that the Aggie Angel Network, launched in 2010 by former students and local community leaders, already has an established reputation as a leading angel network amongst its peers,” Blake said. “I am excited about the opportunity to build even closer ties between AAN and Texas A&M, and envision the CNVE leveraging this affiliation toward meaningful engagement opportunities for our entrepreneurial students– both current and former.”

And the optimism seems to be coming from both sides of the partnership.

“This relationship has the potential to significantly move forward all our entrepreneurial programs, from Startup Aggieland to 3-Day Startup,” said Richard Lester, executive director of the CNVE since 2007. “Closer ties between the AAN and our entrepreneurially minded students will benefit all.”
