    The mission of the Wisconsin Angel Network (WAN) is to build early-stage capital capacity throughout Wisconsin, increasing the number and amount of equity investments in Wisconsin's entrepreneurs. WAN was founded in January 2005 as an umbrella organization providing services and resources to the early-stage investing community. WAN does not operate a fund or make recommendations on potential investments. WAN is a public-private initiative rooted in Governor Jim Doyle's 'Grow Wisconsin' plan and the Legislature's Act 255 initiative, and is operated by the Wisconsin Technology Council. The Midwest Co-Investment Network (MIN) was created by the Wisconsin Angel Network and the Illinois Business and Investors Forum to help early-stage companies cross the 'funding gap.'
