Entrepreneurs

We are no longer accepting business plans for our 2016-17 investment cycle.  Please check back in summer 2017 for information regarding our 2017-18 sourcing and screening timeline.

 

Investment Seekers

SVF invests in US-based, for profit businesses working in the areas of Education, Food Systems & Environment, Health, and Urban Revitalization. We make minority investments ranging from $50,000 – $100,000 through preferred equity or convertible debt securities, in businesses whose products or services have been validated through customer usage, revenue, or market place traction. If you know of a business that meets these criteria, they may submit an executive summary and business plan.

If you have any questions please send an email to businessplans@umsocialventure.com.

 

Capacity Building Projects

SVF provides capacity building support to select companies through high-impact consulting projects in the Spring of each year. Priority is given to portfolio companies but we will review additional businesses in the areas of Education, Food Systems & Environment, Health, and Urban Revitalization looking for support. Project duration is approximately five to seven weeks and teams consist of four to six students.

If you have any questions please send an email to contact@umsocialventure.com.
