If Campus Capital Venture Fellows introduce AE to companies seeking funding that AE later invests in, the venture partner will be given a percentage of “carry” (the returns obtained from holding an investment asset) up to a maximum of $500,000.
During the on-campus portion of the program, AE will reimburse for business expenses, such as transportation to and from startup and tech events, conference fees, and similar expenses, up to $500, with more available if necessary.
Most importantly, Venture partners will have access to the larger VC community through their relationship with Alpha Edison.
