Dot Edu Ventures General Information


Dot Edu began as a small core group of entrepreneurial friends at Stanford and UC Berkeley. Dot Edu was a university based network of friends, spanning computer science and engineering faculty, students, and alumni at various US universities. Dot Edu consisted of three components: a modest fund to allow seed stage investment in cutting edge ideas and technologies built around doctoral and post-doctoral research, a network of pro-active limited partners and regular workshops for exchange and promotion of ideas for future research.
