Blueprint Investor Track
The venture capital industry has a reputation for being homogenous and tough to break into. Together we can change that.

We’re bringing together talented Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students with an entrepreneurial mindset who want to find a community and learn from some of the best startup investors in the business.
“We are the change that we seek”
Leveraging the resources from our communities across the country, the Blueprint Investor Track is setting students up for success through:

- Access to seasoned investors and fund managers with decades of combined experience.
- Mentors that are dedicated to your success and who have a wealth of knowledge to share.
