Lubbock Angel Network
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. LAN is the only form of privately organized capital for venture investing in Lubbock and partners closely with the local entrepreneurship ecosystem to serve as a leader in Lubbock’s burgeoning startup scene.
LAN is one of 14 angel groups in Texas that make up the Alliance of Texas Angel Networks (ATAN). Staff from these groups communicate and coordinate extensively to support and fund portfolio countries, creating a vibrant and active syndication network. LAN is also included in the more than 240 angel groups across the U.S. (and 13,000 angel members) as part of the Angel Capital Association. LAN works with partner organizations to source unique investment opportunities for its members ranging from early-stage deals out of Texas Tech University to fast-growth startups with national syndication partners. LAN is a non-profit organization.
