The Maroon Fund is a member-managed investment fund driven by a Texas A&M volunteer student team whose members operate under the oversight and mentoring of Innovate Angel Funds officers and members, with assistance from faculty of Texas A&M.
This fund is an invitation-only investment group comprised of successful business leaders and entrepreneurs, who provide investment capital, strategic advice and mentoring to early stage technology companies in order to help them achieve market leadership. The fund will seek deal flow in verticals unique to Aggieland, specifically energy, life sciences (Agricultural-Veterinary-Biological) and technology (Engineering-Information-Nano), with select deals from outside of the area. The mission of the fund is three-fold:
- Help advance the cause of entrepreneurship within the Texas A&M community.
- Provide fund members an attractive financial return on their time commitment and their invested capital.
- Advance the economic base of Aggieland through the rapid growth of technology companies.
Members are accredited investors who are founders, CEO’s, and other business and community leaders who have built world-class companies. Members mentor and coach the entrepreneurs they invest in, serve as board and advisory board members, provide business contacts, and assist the entrepreneur with team building, strategic planning and follow-on fundraising as well as supporting and mentoring the Maroon Fund Student Associates.
