UNICORN Angel Network

Community • Engagement • Investment

Interested in startups? Want to connect with and support startups founded by North Carolina School of Science and Math students and alumni? With these goals in mind, IDEA Fund Partners has launched the UNICORN Angel Network. The Network provides a platform for NCSSM alumni and supporters to find, collaborate with, and invest in NCSSM startups.

Ranked among the top public high schools in the U.S., it should be of no surprise that NCCSM alumni have gone on to create successful companies such as PrecisionLender, Appia, Pendo, and many more. IFP has created the Network to connect NCSSM alumni and supporters with these innovative companies as a means to provide mentorship and investment. The Network will source and deliver NCSSM affiliated early stage investment opportunities. Affiliations may include founders, early employees, board members, or other significant relationship. Powered by the Southeast’s most active seed and early stage venture firm, the Network will benefit from IFP’s established deal flow network and investor connections. Members can communicate and share advice, tactics, and tips with the founders and executives of NCSSM’s next startup success story.
