“As an investor in Chestnut Street Ventures, I have had the opportunity to participate in some exciting early stage companies led by Penn Alums. Co-investors have included a group of elite Venture Capital Funds that I would not have had access to as an individual investor.”

“Castor Ventures is an amazing opportunity for MIT grads to get exposure to the VC-world, and specifically to MIT-helmed startups. I have gotten to learn about a wide array of MIT-connected companies in different industries, learn how they are breaking new ground, and invest in them. Castor Ventures is amazingly well-run thanks to the expertise of Alain Hanover and Cainon Coates, who are very knowledgeable and accessible. This has been a great experience for me and also can be for other MIT grads.”

“When I got involved in Green D, I did so hoping it would be enjoyable to interact with others in the Dartmouth community and maybe help give back in a useful way. All of that has been true in spades, but I’ve been very surprised by the strength and quality of the deal flow – I just wasn’t aware of the number of outstanding entrepreneurs around the College and the incredible things they’re involved with. Of course, as Dartmouth folks, they’re willingness to engage and share with us is beyond generous. In addition, the Green D team does a tremendous job in getting us a look, winnowing down the pipeline, putting together concise diligence packages and allowing the investment committee to make quick and high quality decisions. Not only has it been rewarding to be involved but I hope and expect now it will also be rewarding financially for the investors.”
