The Green D Fund, the Dartmouth alumni-focused venture fund, announced today that it has closed the first $1 million of its initial Green D Founders Fund. The alumni venture-focused fund is being advised by Boston-based Launch Angels, and is one of its first college-focused angel funds to close its initial fund-raising.
The fund will invest solely in Dartmouth-related ventures, most of which will be early stage technology and innovation companies, said Michael Collins, the lead manager of the Green D Fund, although it doesn’t have any restrictions or criteria for investment other than the Dartmouth connection. Over the next two years, the fund plans to back between 12 to 18 companies.
