    Founded in March 2000 by Asha Jadeja, Dot Edu began as a small core group of entrepreneurial friends at Stanford and UC Berkeley. It is now a network of computer science and engineering faculty at various universities including CMU, MIT, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, U Penn, Princeton, Washington University, UC San Diego and UC Santa Barbara. Dot Edu consists of three components: A modest fund to allow seed stage investment in cutting edge ideas; a network of pro-active limited partners acting as mentors; and regular workshops for exchange and promotion of ideas for future research.
