Our Ambassadors are the eyes and the ears of Purple Arch Ventures, and in turn Purple Arch Ventures is also the eyes and ears for our Ambassadors. We have informal conversations a few times per year with our Ambassadors and exchange information on what kind of deal flow we are seeing. We provide organized access to Northwestern's alumni network, and also to the alumni network of our sibling funds at Dartmouth, Harvard, Yale, and Penn. While many Ambassadors will have a Northwestern connection, it is not a requirement.

Fill out the form below, and a member of our deal team will be in touch to set up a call to get acquainted. 

Organized Access to the Alumni Network

  • Our community includes alumni: investors  in our funds, VCs, executives, entrepreneurs, and general innovation enthusiasts.
  • Our rolodex is your rolodex.
  • Use our Call to the Network to publicize your requests for resources, introductions, etc.

We See a Lot of Deal Flow

  • Purple Arch Ventures is one of many alumni venture funds, all managed by Launch Angels
  • We also work closely with the deal teams leading the funds in our Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Penn, Wisconsin, Stanford, Berkeley and MIT ecosystems. We have plans to launch more funds in the coming months and years.
  • Collectively, we're looking at several hundred deals per month in all industries.
