The Allen Angel Capital Education Program is a student group of mid-Missouri investors. Through cross-disciplinary collaboration, students enable entrepreneurs to grow through careful analysis of business plans. Students invest in high-growth start-up companies by cultivating deal flow, performing pre-screening duties, completing due diligence, and structuring investment contracts. After an equity position is taken, the program will monitor portfolio holdings and harvest investments.
The AACE Venture Fund is made up of 15-20 cross-disciplinary students each semester. The fund has approximately $700,000 in assets under management, with most of it deployed to its six portfolio companies.
Students will actively learn about angel and venture capital investment strategies through a balance of case studies, books, and deal flow from actual companies seeking funding. Students serve as Investment Analysts to the fund by cultivating deal flow, performing pre-screening duties, completing due diligence, structuring & negotiating investment contracts, and monitoring portfolio holdings to ultimately drive financial returns for the fund.
This structure offers students a rare experiential learning opportunity functioning as a real-life venture capital firm by participating in live venture deals.
Applications for the fall semester close at 11:59 CT on November 16th, 2023
