Rough Draft Ventures


We're a student team backing the most talented and driven college tech entrepreneurs in Boston.


From idea to exit, our mission at Rough Draft Ventures is to back the most ambitious and talented student founders who are creating technologies that will improve the way people live and work. Our student team, advisors and portfolio companies are here to help you take your business to the next level.

The Rough Draft portfolio includes 32 investments, 70+ student foundes, $78M+ capital raised.

We currently limit investments to Greater Boston area colleges and universities. Undergrads, graduate students, and MBAs all qualify. At least one of the main founders has to be student. We want to focus on investments with a heavy software focus, including hardware/software systems companies.
