At Cornell we have a wide range of funding opportunities that are not competition based (though they are competitive!). These range from providing stipends for internships to financial fellowships that allow students to work on their own companies over the summer as opposed to taking a traditional summer job at an established company. Additionally, we provide opportunities for startup companies to raise investment dollars directly from programs affiliated with Cornell and/or Cornell alumni. One example, BR Ventures, is a MBA student run fund, which provides valuable experience to its managers.

We are also pleased to have a few VC scout funds on campus bringing some larger venture capital funds into view. We welcome the interaction with Dorm Room Fund, Rough Draft Ventures and Triphammer Ventures.
