It’s not a class. It’s not a club. It’s not a case study. The University Growth Fund is a full-fledged investment firm, investing real money into companies, and entirely accountable to our investors. As students, they work extra hard to make the best investment decisions possible.
Realize Impact invested in this fund not only because it helps teach venture capital to the next generation, but also because the fund is making a specific effort to bring this experience to a diverse set of students, as the venture capital industry historically lacks diversity, both in its staff and its investees.
