Alumni Ventures

While many top business schools point to their alumni networks with pride, Tuck's alumni network is among the strongest of any business school. A key indicator of the ongoing involvement of Tuck and Dartmouth graduates is their level of financial support. In the 2003 more than 60 percent of alumni contributed to the Tuck Alumni Giving campaign.

Tuck entrepreneurs provide a rich variety of industry perspectives, functional knowledge, and an informed view of what it takes to enter and be successful in diverse career fields and startups. They are passionate about Tuck and their ventures and want to give back to the school in significant ways. The community spirit forged at Tuck remains a vital force through the years.

The list of entrepreneurs below is a powerful resource for learning about selected ventures that Tuck and Dartmouth graduates have started or have been involved in starting. In addition, we have profiled several entrepreneurs, who share their experiences and tips from the field.
