    The Louisiana Angel Network (LAN) is a registered Louisiana Nonprofit Corporation headquartered in Baton Rouge governed by its Board of Directors. LAN is a select network of accredited investors across Louisiana that provides seed and early stage investment capital to viable start up companies ready for angel-round funding. Typically, LAN makes equity investments of $50,000 to $2 million of capital in order to take entrepreneurs to the next level- from finishing product development to entering the marketplace. The network is managed by Dean Capital, LLC, which manages three venture capital funds through which it makes debt and equity investments in seed stage through late stage businesses headquartered in Louisiana. Angels are expected to have the sincere intent to invest a minimum of $25,000 each year through LAN.
