#209 - Managing A Student-Led Investment Fund

By Michigan Ross

The students who manage the student-led investment funds at Michigan Ross are just like normal students, except they carry an extra burden: They are giving actual money to actual businesses, and the school has a real stake in those businesses’ success because of their decisions. In this episode, Ramu talks with three of those leaders about what it’s like to manage actual multimillion-dollar investment funds while studying for their MBA, what deals they’ve regretted, how they approach potential investments, and what the experience will mean as they enter their post-MBA careers. We’ll hear from: Shailly Prasad, Managing the Wolverine Venture Fund; Alice Raymond, Managing the Social Venture Fund, and; Matthew Raskind, Managing the Zell Lurie Commercialization Fund Links from this episode: Investment Fund Webinar - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHW8LFoNZus Wolverine Venture Fund - http://wolverineventurefund.com Social Venture Fund - http://www.umsocialventure.com Zell Lurie Commercialization Fund - http://zlcfund.com Ramu’s Article: https://techcrunch.com/2017/11/30/theres-an-implosion-of-early-stage-vc-funding-and-no-ones-talking-about-it/ Matt’s Article: https://techcrunch.com/2018/02/28/kindred-capital/ Ali’s Article: https://ssir.org/articles/entry/impact_investing_is_being_democratizedand_marginalized_communities_are_bene Shailly’s Article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/peterandrewwilkins/2017/11/07/why-healthcare-startups-are-attracting-the-most-vc-dollars-in-the-midwest/#2a0709842839 We want to hear your feedback.
