Lubbock Angel Network
If you are ready for funding, one of your first stops may be angel investors. An angel investor or angel (also known as a business angel, informal investor, angel funder, private investor, or seed investor) is an affluent individual who provides capital for a business start-up, usually in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity.

As the first formal angel group in Lubbock, Texas, the Lubbock Angel Network (LAN) was formed in January 2015 as a means to provide seed and support capital for innovative start-ups in west Texas and beyond. In its founding, LAN partnered with Texas Tech University and the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance (LEDA) to forge a strategic partnership to spur local economic growth. LAN seeks high-quality deals and healthy returns on investment.
