GAIN: Georgetown Angel Investor Network
As Georgetown continues to grow its entrepreneurial ecosystem, angel investors are key players who contribute expertise, connections and capital. They are a crucial component of a virtuous cycle that attracts entrepreneurs, who in turn attract more investors to build a vibrant entrepreneurship alliance that brings greater connections to its members.

For Hoya investors, a network of like-minded alumni provides deal flow, connections, insight, and a broader pool of capital. Even more than in most industries, investors depend on professional networks for their success.
For Hoya-preneurs, finding capital is one of the biggest challenges of launching a new venture. Georgetown is in a unique position to help these entreprenuers when they need it the most, at the earliest stages of giving birth to an idea.
The 2019 soft launch of GAIN is to begin convening a network of investors in the simplest manner possible. As a sense of community begins to emerge, the program will evolve organically to meet the needs of its constituents. Following the first call, the GEA will evaluate the results and determine next steps, with an eye toward organizing three to four calls annually.
