The thirst for capital is real.

Even at the earliest level, most entrepreneurs would jump at the chance to have coffee with an investor or pitch a partner at a firm. And this isn’t news for the partners at Dorm Room Fund, themselves college students with entrepreneurship on the brain.

That’s why the First Round-backed, student-run investment fund is hosting an open house Nov. 7 at First Round Capital’s University City offices.


Partners and founders from the firm will be at the event to guide students throught the funding application process and how to become a part of the Dorm Room Fund team.

For any questions, be sure to email partner Josh Lee at
