Former Intern Testimonial

My experience with the Boise Angel Alliance was one of the main highlights at the Boise State MBA program.  I was able to gain insight into small business from a number of experienced mentors.  My learning came through networking and talking to a lot of the members.  I also had the privilege of working on the due diligence team for one of their potential investments.  This experience also allowed me to put my schooling into practice and utilize the knowledge that is most valuable.  This internship provided me with a better idea of how small businesses are structured and how to best get funding through the different available sources.  Learning how to setup the ownership structure with angel investors was also very beneficial.  This gave me valuable knowledge that I can use when I am ready to raise money for my own venture.  I will be leveraging this after I sharpen my skills through the great mentors I currently have.  I would definitely recommend this opportunity to any student interested in entrepreneurship and finance.
