The Southwest Angel Network actively gives back to the community through mentoring and education.
In 2017, the highlight of our community outreach work was participating in the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Superstars competition, which was carried out at five Austin Title 1 high schools. Members of our network mentored ten teams at Akins High School and also attended the final city-wide competition. The three sophomore boys from Reagen High School, who won at the city finals, presented a plan for supporting Austin’s Hispanic community and businesses by building an online, Spanish-language marketplace. That winning team then presented at a dinner pitch event of our network.
Additionally, in 2017 members of our network were active in mentoring and speaking as shown by the logos shown above. We participated in incubators, universities, and professional angel events.
