See Juan's story at http://swanimpact.org/my-path-to-social-impact-investing/.
Austin, Texas provides wonderful opportunities for angel investors to get involved with the start-up community. There is CTAN, the Capital Factory, Tech Stars and other groups too numerous to mention here.
What makes the Southwest Angel Network unique is that we are one of just a handful of angel networks in the US with a focus on social-impact, on doing good, and on making the world a better place. We are a source of positive energy for our angels at a time when the country is filled with divisiveness and negativity.
And we see deal flow from social-impact companies from all across the US, and occasionally from Europe. We show our angels amazing social-good companies.
And while we focus on social-impact, we have not lost sight of the goal of making a return for our investors.
Examples of social-impact include improving educational and healthcare outcomes, increasing financial empowerment, protecting the environment, and working to improve the lives of groups of people who face unique challenges.
The Southwest Angel Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with an educational mission. We work with Austin social-impact accelerators to educate entrepreneurs on what it means to establish growing and profitable businesses. We educate angels on social-impact investment opportunities.
