  • Impact: We make investments into companies that have meaningful impact built into the business model.

Investment Process

  • Entrepreneurs interested in investment from the Tarrson Fund should complete our screening form as early as possible in the fundraise. We review all submissions, and a member of our team will reach out once the form is completed.

Portfolio Support

  • As Booth MBA students, we’re uniquely positioned to offer value to founders in our portfolio, with expertise and experience across every business function. We create bespoke portfolio support teams as needed and are as hands-on as you need us to be. Read more about how we support our portfolio companies here.
  • Impact Measurement and Management: The Tarrson Fund aims to generate both financial and social returns and will rigorously provide those results to stakeholders. We work with portfolio companies to develop and amplify impact reporting.
