Purple Arch Ventures is a community of nearly 5,000 Northwestern alums: investors, executives, entrepreneurs, and innovation enthusiasts with a connection to Northwestern. Purple Arch Ventures is private, for-profit, and not affiliated with or officially sanctioned by Northwestern University.

At our core, we are a Northwestern alum venture fund investing in Northwestern alum-led companies. We strongly believe that we can do more together than we can alone.

We offer accredited investors the opportunity to build a diverse portfolio of venture capital investments through our annual funds, and also co-invest into individual deals that meet our investors' personal interests and criteria. If you want to learn more about investment options in the fund, check the box on the sign-up form at the left, and we'll follow up with more information.

We also facilitate a number of special Northwestern alumni services that help the entrepreneurial ecosystem - like our Resource Connector, and local events that we host across the country each year for Northwestern alumni in our community.

We email updates to our community on a monthly basis and encourage you to use this form to sign up to receive the newsletter and join our community.
