Jerome Fisher Program alumni are often inspired to promote M&T student innovation with early-stage investments in brilliant ideas. Alumni investments help our students develop concepts and bring them to market—and investors typically find that participating in student projects can be a highly rewarding experience.
The M&T INNOVATION FUND is a Jerome Fisher Program student-run organization that seeks to provide value creation for University of Pennsylvania start-ups. Managed by M&T students from all class years, with guidance from faculty, Program administrators and alumni, the Fund acts as an incubator or accelerator that provides seed-stage cash grants for near-term venture development, along with non-equity grants for specific expenses. Complementing the initial capital funding, ventures selected for the Fund’s portfolio also receive valuable strategic support and mentorship from M&T alumni.
