The Rines Angel Fund is a highly selective year-long four credit course at the University of New Hampshire; students must successfully complete an arduous application and interview process to be accepted into the Fund as an associate. The Fund was established thanks to a contribution made by University of New Hampshire Emeritus S. Melvin "Mel" Rines '47.
Student associates are versed in angel and venture capital investment strategies through a balance of angel investing research conducted at the Center for Venture Research, deal flow generated from actual companies seeking seed funding.
Membership in the Fund helps undergraduate students at UNH:
Build relationships with local angels and venture capitalists.
Source attractive investment opportunities for the Fund.
Complete in-depth startup research using industry-grade tools.
Make well-informed investment decisions in early-stage companies.
