TL;DR: BTG proved our model by achieving exceptional consulting placement rates and is thrilled to announce our expansion into finance. Today we officially announce the launch of the BTG NeXus Fund — our nation’s first student-led digital asset fund, available exclusively to BTG students. We have appointed an unrivaled group of students to lead BTG Finance and BTG’s NeXus Fund.

In January of 2021, Bridging the Gap (BTG) was born. Less than one year later, BTG has become a premier student-led organization cultivating top, diverse talent for the business community.

Today, we are thrilled to announce our expansion into finance with the launch of the BTG NeXus Fund — our nation’s first, student-led digital asset fund!

NeXus /’nekses’/ (noun, plural nex*us*es, nex*us)

  • A connected series or group
  • A means of connection; tie; a link

NeXus is a digital asset fund investing in Web3 technologies such as cryptocurrencies, non-fungible-tokens (NFTs), and more. The fund is deliberately designed to provide BTG students interested in finance with a one-of-a-kind, hands-on learning experience through a structured, thesis-driven approach. The returns NeXus generates will be invested right back into the fund and towards the professional development of our students.

Introducing the NeXus Fund Managers:

The launch of BTG Finance and BTG’s NeXus Fund is the start of a new era for BTG. Like BTG’s Consulting division, BTG Finance will offer students a top-notch interview preparation program, events with world-class leaders, professional mentorship, and of course, an unparalleled, national peer network.

Two students were appointed to lead this new initiative.

Introducing BTG’s Head of Finance:

2022 is a huge year for BTG! We are humbled by our early successes and are determined to continue fighting for a more diversified and equitable business community. To all of our students, supporters, and donors, thank you very much for your unwavering support.

With a commitment to increasing representation in the business community and the professional development of our students, BTG will continue to identify, cultivate, and connect future BIPOC business leaders as we continuously look for ways to magnify our impact and provide students with unprecedented economic opportunities.
