    Founded in 2017, 99 Tartans is a new Angel Syndicate investing in the best Carnegie Mellon affiliated startups. Each year Carnegie Mellon students, staff and professors launch 20 - 30 startups. Many of these spin-offs are based on industry leading intellectual property developed on campus. The purpose of the group is to find the best of the best and share these investment opportunities with CMU Alumni (and select friends). Together we can all help these great entrepreneurs succeed and also share in their financial success. The group seeks a $75k - $200K investment allocation per deal with follow-on rights. Investments are opt-in deal by deal. Members are asked to make at least one investment per year to stay in good standing. 99 Tartans is independent of and not affiliated with Carnegie Mellon University.
