    Description:

    The Simon School Venture Capital Fund (SSVCF) is an early stage VC fund run by 2nd year MBA students at the Simon Business School, University of Rochester. The SSVCF is a $1 million evergreen fund and was initially funded by alumni donations. The fund is guided by an advisory board, which consists of successful entrepreneurs, VC investors, and professionals in other fields. The SSVCF accepts inquiries from all prospective companies regardless of affiliation with the Simon School of Business or University of Rochester. Preference is shown, however, toward companies that have an affiliation with the University of Rochester and have a presence in the greater Rochester community.
