Bascom Ventures is a community of over 8,000 University of Wisconsin alums: investors, executives, entrepreneurs, and innovation enthusiasts with a connection to University of Wisconsin. Bascom Ventures is private, for-profit, and not affiliated with or officially sanctioned by the University of Wisconsin.
At our core, we are a University of Wisconsin alum venture fund investing in University of Wisconsin alum-led companies. We strongly believe that we can do more together than we can alone.
We offer accredited investors the opportunity to build a diverse portfolio of venture capital investments through our annual funds, and also co-invest into individual deals that meet our investors' personal interests and criteria. If you want to learn more about investment options in the fund, check the box on the signup form below and we'll follow up with more information.
We also facilitate a number of special University of Wisconsin alumni services that help the entrepreneurial ecosystem - like our Resource Connector, and local events that we host across the country each year for University of Wisconsin alumni in our community.
We email updates to our community on a monthly basis and encourage you to use this form to sign up to receive the newsletter and join our community.
