Wolverine Venture Fund --- This course was launched at the University of Michigan in Fall 1997, with a dual mission: to earn a venture rate of return, and to support the educational missions of the Ross School of Business in the area of private equity investing and entrepreneurship. Students have substantial input into decisions to invest in start-up ventures. This course is designed to give students "hands-on" experience in the entire process of venture investing, including: sourcing applicants, initial analysis, due diligence investment negotiation, and monitoring the portfolio of investment. An external advisory board provides assistance and input.
