How do I find a CSU startup to partner with and/or invest in?

Please browse our Early Stage Startups, Existing Startups and Candidate Innovations. It is also a good idea to contact us directly to inquire about opportunities that are not yet posted.

How can I get in touch with a particular startup?

Just contact us and we can introduce you.

Are there opportunities to leverage my investment with matching funds from CSU Ventures?

Yes. We administer the State of Colorado’s Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program (BDEGP) for CSU, a program which can be used to double your investment (up to $150,000) in a bioscience company seeking to perform research at CSU. A similar program for clean energy will be implemented in 2012 as well. Another option is our Commercial Opportunity Investment Program (COIP), which offers a small convertible note up to approximately $20,000 with flexible repayment options.

I don’t know who to talk to at CSU Ventures.
