The Haas Impact Fund invests in exciting early-stage impact-oriented startups. Student Venture Partners lead sourcing, diligence, and portfolio stewardship of early-stage social enterprises.
During the spring semester course, student Venture Partners source promising early-stage impact startups in ten different impact areas such as Health, Financial Access, and Renewable Energy.
In April at the annual Invest for Impact Pitch Competition, student Venture Partners pitch recommendations to a panel of judges for up to $50,000 equity investment from the Haas Impact Fund along with potential additional funding from a select group of funds.
Applications for the Haas Impact Fund open each year in the Fall.
