UVF II is a social venture in and of itself by providing a best-in-class experiential learning experience for the students involved in the program. They learn the intricacies of valuation and negotiating an investment in a company from industry experts in real-time, apprentice-style training. In addition, each UVF II investment will be an impact investment and will be screened first on the social good the company is trying to achieve, then on the financial returns it expects to provide investors.
UVF II will target investments in companies in Utah and beyond that are seeking positive social and financial performance—providing benefits for low to moderate income people and other social outcomes while having the potential of scaling using traditional capital markets. The investments will be screened and targeted to be both CRA and PRI compliant for our investors.
