The Tufts University Seed Investor Network will connect and provide opportunities for members of the greater Tufts University Innovation Community including alumni, friends of Tufts and industry to learn about opportunities to support start-ups created by Tufts faculty, students and alumni.

The program will be managed by the Office of the Vice Provost for Innovation with key partnerships with Technology Transfer, Advancement and Derby Entrepreneurship Center.  The goal is to launch the program in Fall 2023.

By joining the Seed Investor Network as an investor, you will help:

  1. Increase the likelihood of success for start-ups created by Tufts faculty, students and alumni.
  2. Elevate Tufts’ profile as an innovative institution that creates new companies driving economic development for the region and nation.
  3. Increase the likelihood of financial return from start-ups where Tufts University possesses a financial interest via an intellectual property or equity interest.
