In addition to attending regularly scheduled meetings, committee members will spend considerable time marketing, identifying, qualifying, and recommending investments, as well as following-up with existing portfolio companies. Since the Fund is a transaction-based program, committee members should be aware that there may be times of intense activity and that they will be expected to work within tight deadlines, including evenings and weekends. Students who fail to fulfill their responsibilities may be removed at any time.
