From the beginning, the The Yard fund has delivered on its mission to do well and do good for all the members of our community.
For investors, we offer easy access to a diverse venture portfolio where they back the companies of fellow alumni and co-invest alongside smart, professional VCs. We also provide them with other benefits: networking, learning, and giving back to the next generation of fellow alums.
We also offer investors the opportunity to participate in our Investor Pledge Program, which is a non-binding and good-intent pledge to donate some portion of their profits back to the College with an earmark for their program of choice. The amount, frequency, and program of the gift is entirely up to the investor and is optional and not legally binding.
For entrepreneurs, we provide money, connections, and resources. And for VCs, we reciprocate with deal referrals in their areas of interest.
