WHAT IS UVF?
The University Venture Fund is the premier student investing experience. At UVF, students engage in a bona fide investment fund where they scrutinize new ventures, debate investment decisions, and make real impact.
"If this were around when I was in school, I'd probably still be in school."

Students take the first look at new investment opportunities and present findings to their peers
After initial screening, a select group of student associates begin more advanced phases of due diligence

massive the [UVF] opportunity is."
