What We Invest: 

We're investing in 25 of the best startups from colleges each year.  

Our angel investments are targeted to the following five industries as we see the highest-growth potential:

  1. Cybersecurity

  2. Biotech

  3. Financial Technology (Banking) 

  4. E-Commerce and Mobile Development

  5. Drone and Virtual Reality

Rules of our VC Funds:

You can invest up to $2,500,000 per fund.  

The minimum reservation is $25,000.

Each school's fund is capped at $10,000,000.

Most funds are reserved and full within 7 days of launch.

Our purpose is to not invest because of loyalty to the college, but rather because we see the potential for a college dorm room founder (or alumni) to have a home run, return on investment (ROI).  We invest in both current student startup founders as well as recent graduates and alumni of top colleges and universities.
