One million in 400 days. That’s the amount the Billiken Angels Network, an angel investment group out of Saint Louis University’s John Cook School of Business, raised to help local start-ups.
The group invests in firms of any industry and size that show promise and make an impact on the region and its economy. The eight companies selected for the investments have created a total of 100 jobs in St. Louis.
Billiken Angels Network, which is believed to be one of only 24 university-based angel networks nationwide, also serves as the most significant source of revenue for the Saint Louis University Entrepreneurship Program at John Cook.
