Dartmouth alumni close $1 million for Launch Angels-supported Green D Founders Fund

By Dennis Keohane January 6th, 2015 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. For more on the closing of the Greed D Founders Fund and Launch Angels’ involvement, see the full article on BetaBoston.
Launch Angels is a Boston-based venture capital firm that helps alumni, universities, and other affinity groups create venture funds to support early stage companies that meet each fund’s unique investment goals.
