The Wolverine Venture Fund was founded in 1997. It grew out of a fund established in 1988 by the Regents of the University of Michigan for donors interested in contributing to high-risk, high-return investments. WVF’s mission is to enrich student development by providing education through hands-on experience while achieving returns on capital. WVF has invested in 30 companies and increased its assets from $2M to $7M through M&A and IPO exits. Learn more.
