Dutch Student Investment Fund (DSIF) is a venture capital fund managed by students from the University of Twente and Saxion University of Applied Sciences. It was established in 2016 as the first student-run European venture capital fund. DSIF invests from 5.000€ to 50.000€ into innovative start-ups created by bachelor and master students, PhDs and recent graduates. The fund aims to help young student entrepreneurs to turn their great ideas into real start-ups.
While DSIF is structured as a venture capital fund, its primary goal is not to make the biggest return on investment but rather to support student entrepreneurs as much as possible. DSIF believes that young entrepreneurs should have access to all the means necessary to turn their great ideas into real start-ups that could potentially benefit society.
