Applying for Funding

Companies seeking funding should send their pitch deck to Charlie Johnson, Managing Director, at  The pitch deck should include a description of the your connection to UMass Amherst, business, market, competitive advantage, execution plan, management, and intended use of proceeds.

Companies that we believe have the most promise and are a good fit will be invited to meet with our investment committee which may identify areas for further due diligence. Binding investment commitments and terms are only set forth in legal documentation that is mutually agreed to by the Fund and the portfolio company.
