Chestnut Street Ventures is a community of nearly 10,000 University of Pennsylvania alums: investors, executives, entrepreneurs, and innovation enthusiasts with a connection to Penn. Chestnut Street Ventures is private, for-profit, and not affiliated with or officially sanctioned by the University of Pennsylvania.
At our core, we are a University of Pennsylvania alum venture fund investing in Penn 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 sign-up form at the left, and we'll follow up with more information.
We also facilitate a number of special University of Pennsylvania alumni services that help the entrepreneurial ecosystem - like our Resource Connector and local events that we host across the country each year for Penn 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.
