Why Alumshares?

More than a new asset class; a movement.

As the primary source of basic research, our universities are the linchpin in supporting and creating innovation in foundational and general-purpose technologies including AI and data science, advanced battery storage, advanced semiconductors, genomics and synthetic biology, 5G, quantum information systems, robotics, and more.

Our universities are where big ideas collide, and human capital is abundant. The proof is in the history; research advances the economy and improves lives.

In fact, there was over $591 billion contributed to US GDP in the last 20 years from academic technology transfer which has supported the creation of nearly 4 million jobs, one of the most active growth sectors of the global economy. Many technologies we use in our daily lives were developed at universities including insulin, penicillin, ultrasound, pap smears, the pacemaker, the seat belt, PET / CT scanners, the meningitis vaccine, the internet, and even Google, Gatorade, and Lyrica.

What if we as alumni could directly participate economically in these successes? With Alumshares, you can now own a piece of the great innovations you’ve already helped to support.
