The Bronco Ventures Fund (www.broncoventures.com) is a new project in the CIE designed to not only provide foundation for increased growth and program offerings, but also build a pipeline for alumni entrepreneurs seeking venture funding.
Through following the venture capital co-investment model, the fund holds equity in numerous portfolio companies spanning a wide range of sectors. In addition, the CIE builds a close relationship with local VCs investing across different stages and industries. The result is a pipeline for intern and employee recruiting along with a direct link for SCU entrepreneurs to present their businesses to investors that can help their venture reach its full potential.
By enabling the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship to connect, educate and launch high technology entrepreneurs, Bronco Ventures ensures greater national recognition and prosperity for 'the Jesuit university in the Silicon Valley.'
