University of Michigan

Launched in September 2009 by a group of master’s students, the University of Michigan Social Venture Fund (SvF) invests in and supports innovative companies that place social impact at the heart of their business model.  SvF fosters the growth of enterprises responding to societal needs that traditional markets have insufficiently addressed.  As the first student-run social venture fund in the country, SvF provides an unparalleled action-based learning experience, which places equal importance on maximizing financial returns and socially/environmentally-driven venture investing and entrepreneurship. The fund is housed within the Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies at the Ross School of Business.
