Startup Investment

MISSION

OUR PROCESS

1

Under the guidance of USC faculty, staff, and investment experts, USC students interested in venture capital investing receive training on how to source deals, perform due diligence, evaluate potential investments, write investment memos, and manage portfolio companies.

2

A volunteer investment committee comprised of experienced investors from LA and Silicon Valley, and USC supporters, meet and make investment recommendations on the companies proposed by students.

3

The fund provides capital in exchange for convertible equity pursuant to the widely used SAFE documents.  If an investment yields a profit (via liquidity event), then the returns go back into the fund for future investments, thereby making the fund evergreen.
