Note from Parcel B

Parcel B is a syndicate of Olin alumni and associated investors who believe in the mission of Olin College and the great companies its alumni have created so far in its short history. The syndicate's mission is to help Olin Founders create successful venture-backed startups by providing capital, advice, and connections.

Parcel B is not officially associated with or financially backed by Olin College. For notes on Parcel B's backing by Bloomberg Beta's Open Angels program, please see the note under the Backers section.

Dealflow

Parcel B will review any company started by an Olin student or alum, but each member will choose whether or not to invest on a per-deal basis. Each member of the syndicate has their own investment criteria and can be contacted individually to discuss their own personal investment thesis. Several are committed to investing in Olin Startups broadly. Others are more interested in a specific investment thesis or rounding out their investment portfolios.
