The Carolina Angel Network (CAN) brings together the UNC-Chapel Hill entrepreneurial community, University alumni network and innovative private companies to empower the businesses that drive our future. Its mission is to support the Carolina entrepreneurial community with an angel investing platform and co-investment fund (the Carolina Growth Fund) that engages and leverages the power of our alumni network. The CAN operational team and investment platform exist within the UNC Office of Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development and works in partnership with the UNC School of Law and the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. The Carolina Angel Network actively engages and matches UNC-Chapel Hill alumni network expertise with portfolio companies to support growth and success. The global Carolina community offers a uniquely powerful opportunity for networking and guidance from industry experts and successful entrepreneurial leaders. CAN members work actively to connect CAN portfolio companies with the UNC-Chapel Hill network to foster collaboration and further success.
