The University Technology Seed Fund (UTSF) – Seed Capital

The University Technology Seed Fund (UTSF) is a $6.5M venture fund organized in 2002 by Trillium Group and the University of Rochester. Its limited partners include accredited investors, educational institutions, corporations, trusts, and others in the community. The mission of the fund is to support economic development in the Rochester region while generating substantial long-term capital gains for all stake holders.

Because of the many uncertainties and high risks inherent in very early stage investing, few venture funds make seed investments, particularly in this region. Yet at Trillium, we recognize that a tremendous research and technology base exists in Upstate N.Y. UTSF enables Trillium to tap into this technology base and accelerate new business creation. We help identify promising concept and seed-stage companies in our region which offer high potential for commercial success. We then provide the critical services and financing necessary to launch these companies and transform them into investable and self-sustaining businesses.
