A Lack of Clear Investment Pathways for Alumni to Invest into University-Bred Startups
Alumni are a strong affinity group that WANT to share expertise and invest in their university’s innovation and start-up ecosystem, but they are stymied by the lack of clear pathways to do so.
Innovators Need a Better Bridge to Resources
A collaborative, university-centric platform, focused solely on student innovators and alumni founders, connecting them with alumni investors is missing.
Funding Innovation is Often Challenging for University Researchers.
Not all innovation is investible! University innovators should focus their time and energy on their projects - not on searching for resources, capital and guidance – Sparticle connects the dots.
