The MBA Fund is a venture capital firm that helps founders from the top startup-producing universities create legendary companies. We most frequently back student, alumni and dropout founders from Harvard Business School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
We’re a community of investors and operators who aren’t afraid to take the riskiest leaps with founders who are just getting started. Our backers include top-tier VC firms, repeat founders, and super angels with ties to the communities where we invest. This network is ready and willing to help founders in our portfolio with financing, hiring, customer growth and more.
We've made over 100 early stage investments from our core Fund I and Fund II. Companies in our portfolio often go on to raise follow-on capital from top funds (such as Sequoia, Founders Fund, Accel, Bessemer, Lightspeed and others) or otherwise scale rapidly. Our portfolio includes a number of unicorns and many other companies that are well on their way towards establishing market leadership.
In addition to investing out of our flagship fund, we manage an invite-only syndicate on AngelList (read about it here and apply to track our deals). We bring later stage deals to this syndicate, giving investors the opportunity to invest alongside us on a deal-by-deal basis.
