How To Give Back To University of Michigan as an Alumni

This is Ross Blankenship, founder of Angel Kings, a top venture capital firm, as well as an investor in many top Wolverine backed startups from the University of Michigan. Go blue! If you want to invest in some of their next great startups, you want to give back to Michigan, think about this, instead of just donating, why not invest in some of these awesome entrepreneurs that are coming off the campus and doing great things? These are current students, and recent graduates who are building awesome companies.

Here are 3 things you need to know. The first is that you can become a Michigan mentor for many of these Michigan top startups, dorm room founders, and companies there, and that's something we'll help you do.


The 2nd thing is, we'll give you access to actually speak and be a part of campus events on the undergraduate campus at Michigan, from Michigan's Ross School of Business, to the undergraduate business entrepreneurship programs, as well as some of the on campus business competitions.  You can be a judge there, and by investing in our funds., we'll work to provide you and give you access to some of those opportunities.

 Next is the fact or the 3rd point is that you can invest actually, I'm not sure if you knew this, but you can invest in targeted University of Michigan VC funds, and that's what we've created just for you. These funds support Michigan only exclusively founded startups and entrepreneurs.

The University of Michigan is not directly affiliating or endorsing this, just to be clear, however as a Wolverine alum, you can have a direct impact on building the next generation of Michigan startups through these investments. We've built them just custom for you so that not only can you give back, but you can be rewarded financially as these startups take off.

 Check out that, check out the Wolverine backed startups at, so make sure you bookmark that, and reach out to us so we can help make it happen.
