Entrepreneur and Technology Management Program Mentor Chuck Sheldon

Chuck and Missy Sheldon Offer Technology Management Program $500k Funding Opportunity

The University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) Technology Management Program (TMP) is pleased to announce that Curvature founder Chuck Sheldon and his wife Missy have provided a generous gift opportunity in which all donations to TMP will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $250k. Intended to support TMP’s current and future initiatives, programs, and curriculum centered around entrepreneurship, the Sheldons hope their gift will inspire others to give and generate $500k or more in new funding. As a serial entrepreneur and TMP New Venture Competition Mentor who has successfully formed and led several multi-million dollar enterprises in Central and Southern California, this gift reinforces Sheldon’s passion to support emerging entrepreneurs. 

Join the Sheldons and invest in entrepreneurship at UCSB by contributing here: or contacting Mehgan Tanner, Director of Development, College of Engineering, at 805.893.5650 or mehgan.tanner@ucsb.edu. Online gifts: please note "Sheldon Match" in the comments field. Pledges up to five years will be eligible for this matching gift opportunity.
