DFW entrepreneur events, Tech Wildcatters, Baylor Angel Network

I’ll periodically post on what’s going on in the Dallas entrepreneur and startup community.  I welcome guest bloggers or pointers to already published pieces.

The DallasBlue Entrepreneurs Community Event Directory is the most comprehensive directory of North Texas entrepreneur and startup meetings.  Visit us to learn what’s happening or add your own event or group.

Tech Wildcatters recently hosted the Baylor Angel Network (BAN) (thanks Gabriella!). Attendees included the North Texas Angel Network and The InvestIn Forum.  Recent Tech Wildcatter graduates included Concepta Systems, CollegeJobConnect, Image Vision Labs, Mobestream, and Media Brand Protection Agency. Applications are open through Nov. 4 for their next round.

BAN is based in Waco and has two funding cycles that synch with the school year. MBA students serve as analysts to qualify applicants.  They’ve invested $550K in 5 ventures in 7 rounds to date.  They are not early stage investors. They expect products to be ready for the market.  There is a modest $100 application fee. They don’t limit investments to Baylor grads or specific markets, industries, or locations.
