    MentorTech Ventures is a seed and early-stage venture capital fund that invests in information technology, marketing technology and medical device companies with a primary focus on those companies originating at the University of Pennsylvania. Run by former Wharton School faculty member Michael Aronson, MentorTech Ventures plays an active role with its investments from start-up to exit. The firm's preference is to invest in companies that have a proven product or service and have significant intellectual property developed, and Mentor favors companies that can co-locate at its offices or are located in close geographic proximity. MentorTech will selectively 'co-invest' outside the Philadelphia area in early and growth-stage companies. The firm's investments range in size up to $250,000.
