University Studio Guild (USG) is an inclusive community for university administrators, technology offices, entrepreneurship centers, and startup studios who are building ecosystems to spur commercialization, develop talent, and create economic growth through startup creation. USG is a forum to explore, learn, and adapt the venture studio model, collaborate on ideas and deals, connect ecosystems, and advocate for studios as a new vehicle for effective innovation.
USG is organized by High Alpha Innovation, a venture builder that partners with universities to create fast-growing startups. The group convenes member studios on a quarterly basis, rotating between studio "hosts." Beyond attendance and hosting, no additional cost or commitment is required.
