Alumni Investors

Venture Creations and Advancement have partnered to deliver deal flow in early-stage startups to
alumni investors. Each startup must become part of Venture Creations as a first step and work with expert coaches who perform valuable due diligence, de-risk the business model, validate revenues and commercial claims. 

Only those startups that pass the Venture Creations evaluation process will be forwarded to the alumni who have signed up to see the deal flow. Each investor then decides for themselves whether they (a) pass on the investment, or (b) directly approach the startup to explore a deal. RIT does not participate in the deal, only sources the deal flow. 
Deals will be sourced according to commercial potential and company quality. We anticipate that many of these startups will benefit from being affiliated with RIT through research support, co-op student opportunities, access to expensive facilities or equipment, etc.
