Each member’s invested capital is then aggregated in a CTA Series which in turn invests in one Portfolio Company. The Members of a Series decide together how to manage the investment in their Portfolio Company. Only Members of a Series bear the risk and participate in the gains and losses of their Portfolio Company investment. Members contribute $2,000 upon joining the Fund then thereafter only as investments are made.
Cowboy Technology Angels is managed by Jim Troxel, OSU ’68, who leads WBTangels. CTA has partnered with WBTangels to facilitate the investment processes of CTA, provide connections to technology and capital, and tend to CTA administration.
