EXPLORE THE UNIVERSITY VENTURE FUND

 

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."

Warren Buffett

OUR APPROACH

 

Students and UVF stakeholders source and intake new deals

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

Student teams are mentored by management as recommendations and investment materials are developed

UVF's investment committee, consisting of seasoned investors, examines students' recommendations and decide whether to invest

WHO WE ARE

 

We are a mission-driven network of students, mentors, alumni, investors, and innovators.

"Leave it to young, idealistic college students to blaze the trail."

"The University Venture Fund is the world's largest independently managed fund run entirely by students."

"It's hard to put into words just how massive the [UVF] opportunity is."

Eric Townsend, CEO Bluesource
