Cowboy Technology Angels


Cowboy Technology Angels, LLC, is comprised of alumni and other friends of Oklahoma State University who desire to see the wealth of research, talent and innovation that the university has developed applied to help grow investor-ready entrepreneurs and their young companies. CTA is an independent investment fund separate from Oklahoma State University, its Alumni Association, its Foundation, and Cowboy Technologies, LLC.

Each member of Cowboy Technology Angels is an accredited investor. Members are able to select their own investments. 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.
