2018 AVIP Investment
First Investment in An EdTech Company
In June 2018, AVIP made its first investment in an EdTech firm focused on improving literacy for children in disenfranchised communities. The fund invested $50,000 for an equity stake as part of a $2 million seed round led by early-stage and impact-focused institutional investors.

As a philanthropic evergreen fund, every dollar contributed is reinvested into the fund, and impacts experiential learning opportunities for subsequent classes of Anderson students.
