Companies interested in applying to the Baylor Angel Network should apply through ProSeeder, our online deal flow platform and make arrangements to have an introductory call with BAN’s Executive Director. Typically, 12-15 deals are selected for screening diligence.
Companies accepted into screening diligence are assigned to a BAN analyst and member for the initial diligence. The BAN analyst serves as the primary point of contact from this point on and will collect additional information and conduct company conference calls to prepare an internal overview report for the screening committee.
A screening committee of members review all applications that have completed the screening diligence and select the 4 companies they have the most interest in inviting to present to the full BAN membership.
Companies selected by the screening committee are invited to present to the full BAN membership at one of the quarterly presentation meetings, which includes a casual lunch for additional networking with BAN Members. We request all pitches be made in person, and invitations to the presentation meeting cannot be rescheduled or deferred.
Baylor University is no longer involved in the process after the presentation meeting. All ministerial and logistical support will be provided by Affinity Link II, LLC. If BAN members express interest in additional due diligence, Affinity Link II will schedule due diligence meetings with the team and interested BAN members. Members aim to complete due diligence within 30 days of the presentation meeting.
