Get Involved

  • RAISE Forum

    The RAISE Forum introduces companies ready to scale and grow to active investors in a concise and efficient morning of formal presentations and conversations. Candidates also receive mentoring from University representatives and local start-up experts.
  • Peachtree Minority Venture Fund

    Underrepresented minority founders receive less than 3% of US venture capital investment. A large part of that issue is that typical venture capital investors are White/Asian and have very little exposure to underrepresented minority markets. Peachtree seeks to play a role in changing these narratives.
