Venture Capital firm focused on alumni of Northwestern University.

Purple Arch Ventures is a community of Northwestern investors, executives, entrepreneurs and innovation enthusiasts who pool money into a venture capital fund to invest in Northwestern connected companies. The firm invests in fifteen to twenty-five deals per year spanning a range of industries, stages and geographies.
