Abstract

Various aspects of the the venture capital fund for the Junior Engineering Clinic are discussed. A venture capital fund was created for the development of original products by multidisciplinary student teams within the Junior Engineering Clinic. To be funded, a student proposal must describe an enterprise that meets the criteria necessiting the team to be multidisciplinary, organized into a corporate structure, consist of an original product idea, and appoint a project director from the college of engineering. The original idea consists of a pressure relief system to prevent residential roof damage during high wind loading.
