About the Billiken Angels Network: The Billiken Angels' tag line is "...the deals that make a difference" and that is the goal of the BAN - to identify and invest funds and expertise in those businesses that can make a difference in the economy of the St. Louis region, and in the lives of the people living in the region and elsewhere.
The BAN will consider businesses at any stage (seed, start-up, existing, growing, etc.) and in any industry (retail, wholesale, manufacturing, service, financial, internet, high-tech, etc.). What is special about BAN is its focus on growing businesses with "SLU DNA" -- firms owned by current or former SLU students, current or retired SLU faculty and staff, or firms using intellectual property licensed from SLU.
