GVSU's Investment Portfolio Organization
IPO is Grand Valley State University's student-run investment organization, which manages a real $70,000 portfolio. Members of the club participate in market research, investment selection, and host professional speakers throughout the year. We have several annual trips (Engage in Chicago, and Berkshire Hathaway's annual shareholder meeting) and also many social events that provide unparalleled investing insight and exclusive networking opportunities! Meetings are every Thursday at 6pm in the Seidman Forum SCB-1008 in the Seidman College of Business downtown. Start the process to become an official IPO member, register on our OrgSync page!
THIS WEEK: Thursday, September 22
This week we will be holding our round robin Investing 101 meeting. During the meeting we will break into four groups that will be lead by different members of our e-board. These members will be teaching on various investing topics for about 10 minutes, then the groups will switch to the next topic. I encourage everyone to bring either a computer or notebook so you can take notes. This is always one of the meetings that we are told people enjoy most so I hope everyone is looking forward to it as much as I am!
Join us next Friday, September 30th for our first IPO group outing at the Muskegon River. We will be renting kayaks and enjoying this beautiful weather while it lasts! I hope everyone will consider joining as this was a blast last year! If you are interested in attending please contact Jenna Pizarek at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for a spot at the event.
