Becoming a BAN Analyst
Every fall BAN seeks at least six exemplary junior students (typically with GPA above 3.5) who coordinate with the Senior BAN Analysts to help run the program. The Junior Analysts are required to assist the Senior Analysts and the Executive Director with daily operations, attend weekly staff meetings, attend quarterly deal screening and presentation meetings, complete required coursework and other assigned projects. In addition, the Junior Analysts need to take Entrepreneurial Finance (FIN 4310) before entering their senior year.
This is an excellent opportunity to gain real-world experience with angel investing and private equity that will also enhance your resume.
As a Junior BAN Analyst, you will receive one hour of course credit during the Spring Semester of your junior year.
As a Senior BAN Analyst, you will receive six hours of course credit for your contributions over the two semesters of your senior year.
The responsibilities of BAN analysts include but are not limited to:
- Manage and conduct deal-screening processes (two screening cycles per semester).
- Develop a personal mentoring relationship with two angel members.
- Participate in student-led discussion of the assigned readings.
- Attend all screening meetings.
- Attend and be available to help on all Entrepreneur Presentation Days (two per semester).
- Manage logistics for the Entrepreneur Presentation Days.
- Either individually or with another analyst, observe the due diligence process for a prospective portfolio company.
- Manage the recruiting and on-boarding process for the next class of BAN Analysts.
The Senior BAN Analysts typically host an Information Session and accept applications in early September of the Fall Semester. Students interested in applying to the Baylor Angel Network should be on the lookout for flyers with more information and should plan to attend the Information Session.
