Connecting FAU Alumni and Friends to FAU Startups

Welcome to the FAU Tech Runway Investor Network

FAU Tech Runway Investor Network (FAU-TRIN) is a professionally led, member-centered angel investor group dedicated to improving the investment experience for both entrepreneurs and investors who share a mutual affinity through their affiliation with FAU.
FAU-TRIN will grow to encompass a large, national network of FAU alumni, faculty, parents, and friends-of-the-university, all sharing their experience and knowledge across multiple industries, technologies, business/revenue models and stages during the investment process.
FAU-TRIN is above all investment return-driven. Our goal is to financially back the most promising entrepreneurial managers sourced from FAU’s broad ecosystem. The experience, quality, and completeness of management teams is often the best predictor of ultimate success of companies and the angel investors who back them.
