STUDENT FOUNDED, ENTREPRENEURIAL DRIVEN, START-UP FOCUSED
The Rines Angel Fund is a highly selective year-long four credit course at the University of New Hampshire; students must successfully complete an arduous application and interview process to be accepted into the Fund as an associate. Student associates are versed in angel and venture capital investment strategies through a balance of angel investing research conducted at the Center for Venture Research, deal flow generated from actual companies seeking funding, and industry experts.
The Fund allows high-achieving students of all backgrounds and academic disciplines to engage in an environment of like-minded individuals, including other students, entrepreneurs, investors, and business professionals. The collaborative atmosphere and the utilization of resources at the University of New Hampshire allows students to gain incredible experience -- and results in quality due diligence reports that inform investments.
