Introducing Sparticle INTERSECT

The University Startup Deal Discovery Platform: Making University Innovation an Asset Class

Sparticle’s INTERSECT is the first platform built from the ground up to connect university innovation and startups, to alumni capital and expertise. Using on-campus influencers and other networks, INTERSECT, will curate and share information about campus startups and other resources with the alumni community.

INTERSECT utilizes A.I., machine learning, predictive analytics and data science tools to provide a quantitative approach for selecting the best university startups with the highest probability of success.

The Platform is at its heart a network of



Student Founders, Faculty, Researchers and Alumni Founders



Alumni Investors and Mentors



Retail and Family Office Investors, VCs and CVCs


A Scalable A.I.-driven deal-discovery platform that showcases the best startup investments from top universities.

INTERSECT connects alumni, investors, donors, innovators, advisors and service providers in a virtuous circle.

Private Equity for EVERYONE!

Through partnership with a regulated crowdfund portal we will be able to offer investments to non-accredited investors under Reg CF, part of the JOBS Act legislation that gave rise to crowdfunding.* Because of this we can vastly increase the capital pool, thereby creating a totally new asset class: University INNOVATION.
