Loyola Angels is a $250,000 charitable fund at the Loyola University Maryland Simon Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship that will enable a year-long interdisciplinary experiential classroom offering by funding investments in Maryland businesses, with a preference for those led by women and entrepreneurs of color.
Applied Angel Investing (BA495/GB797) provides students with hands-on experience as angel investors and an opportunity to make a lasting impact on early-stage Maryland companies. Students attend pitch meetings and analyze companies to recommend $10 - 20,000 for investments, with preference to fund women and founders of color. Topics include bonds, equities, risk definition and measurement, return analysis, and models of valuation. Students are also introduced to the primary types of investment vehicles including convertible bonds and SAFEs.
60 credits must be completed by undergrads prior to taking this course.
