The VentureBridge is an initiative of the Swartz Center to connect early stage CMU startups with alumni in essential startup ecosystems to help them succeed more quickly. The program's goal is to develop a framework to facilitate connections to mentors, early customers, and value-added investors.

The cornerstone of the VentureBridge is the summer accelerator. This summer, six teams were selected to come to the San Francisco Bay Area to launch their ventures. The VentureBridge Accelerator operates out of both CMU-SV on Moffett Field in Mountain View and SOMA in San Francisco. Teams are giving office space in both locations. Events and office hours are also hosting in both places in order to engage the entire CMU alumni community with the VentureBridge.
