EP 015- Meeting the STEM Fund Founders

The STEM Fund started operating in the Fall semester of 2023 and is led by our own UConn students. In this episode, we talk with seniors Joseph Roberts, a Finance major, and Nicholas Janus, an Electrical Engineer major, about the STEM Fund and how it came to be. Additionally, we touch upon topics such as goals for the fund, their experiences in venture capital, and their work-life balance as both of our guests are students while directing this course.
