We are currently accepting business plans for our 2018-2019 investment cycle until Friday, November 2nd, 2018.  To submit your business please send a copy of your business plan to svfbusinessplans@umich.edu.

Investment Seekers

SVF invests in US-based, for-profit social enterprises working in the areas of Education, Food Systems & Environment, Health, and Urban Revitalization. We make minority investments ranging from $50,000 – $100,000 through preferred equity or convertible debt securities, in businesses whose products or services have been validated through customer usage, revenue, or market place traction. If you know of a business that meets these criteria, they may submit an executive summary and business plan.

If you have any questions please contact Nathan Stevens at nste@umich.edu.
