INVEST FOR RETURN
& MEANING

We’re creating a community of people who have expertise in their respective fields and can give back to the University in ways they may not have been able to before.

Carmen Ventures leverages a well-established and global alumni group to help create and advance existing connections. At 570K strong, Buckeyes form the largest living alumni network ever.

Carmen is an opportunity to get in touch with new investors, entrepreneurs and alumni you may not have normally interacted with.

The innovations and ideas that come from Carmen will directly benefit our community as well as the state as a whole.

BY INVESTING IN OTHER BUCKEYES,
YOU'LL BE A CATALYST FOR CHANGE
