College Street Innovation Fund

The College Street Innovation Fund offers seed funding to the most promising student-led Yale startups. The Fund was created in December 2013 by Yale University in partnership with Connecticut Innovations and a local bank (now Webster Bank) in order to help Yale startups improve access to early stage investment capital. Elm Street Ventures, a seed and early-stage venture fund based in New Haven, Connecticut, is the fund manager. Funding is available to any Yale student venture, with a preference for those that have participated in programs at Tsai CITY or student/faculty ventures at Yale OCR.
