AlumniFunder exists to build a marketplace for disruptive initiatives, where youthfully minded doers can seek biased capital and advice from a “crowd” with shared intellectual and collegiate experiences.
Crowdfunding, however, is not a panacea. It is simply a technological tool for pooling resources. AlumniFunder aims to use this technology to facilitate access to capital for smart, hungry, foolish yet capable dreamers. People who are willing to put their ideas and ultimately themselves in front of their alumni community in the hope of executing on their projects and ultimately, their companies.
AlumniFunder strives to create an alternative path to creative, social, charitable, and business success, one that fosters a diverse ecosystem of entrepreneurship in all its myriad forms within established alumni networks, extending the mission of the university beyond its physical walls.
