Press overview

SSC Venture Partners is an accelerator and seed-stage VC focussed on investing in startups formed by Boston College students and alumni.

SSC Venture Partners was formed based on the principals of  the Soaring Startup Circle (SSC), a 501(3)c non-profit that donated money, office space, and mentorship services to fledgling BC founded startups. The goal of the SSC is to bring entrepreneurship at BC to the forefront of the local and national startup ecosystem. The SSC Venture Partners is the next stage in the evolution of that mission, which will now be able to write larger checks and take more active roles in its portfolio. The fund will run both an annual summer accelerator as well as acting as a year-round seed investor.

In order to achieve that vision, in 2017, SSC Venture Partners has had its close of Fund I with a goal of raising over $250,000. The fun includes over a dozen high net worth and high profile Boston College alumni.


The Soaring Startup Circle regularly works with members of the press to promote entrepreneurship and the teams participating in the SSC.
