Robert H. Smith School of Business - Dingman Venture Fellowship (DVF)

REGISTRATION FORM FOR MATCHING FUNDS - FOR EMPLOYERS To apply for consideration for the DVF, please complete this form. Notes on criteria for consideration: What is a startup? Consider the definition: “A startup company or startup is a company, a partnership or temporary organization designed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model. These companies, generally newly created, are in a phase of development and research for markets.” For the purposes of the DVF, we target startup firms that are primarily: • In seed-stage through early-stage financing • In existence for 5 years or less • Have less than 80 employees • Exhibit a “rapid-growth” or “early-stage innovation” mindset These are guidelines, not hard rules, and most firms that meet most of these will be considered as potential employers for the DVF.
