Chestnut Street Ventures is a community of Penn alums: investors, executives, entrepreneurs, and innovation enthusiasts with a connection to UPenn or its graduate schools. At our core,  we are a Penn alum venture fund investing in Penn alum-led companies. We are private, for profit, and not part of UPenn. We strongly believe that we can do better investing in VC together than any of us can do alone. Our Annual Funds and Co-Investment Program are accepting new accredited investors.
