The GOOSE Society has been funding startups since 2005 when it was formed by Jack Gill, a legendary Silicon Valley venture capitalist, and Rod Canion, the founder and CEO of Compaq computers. GOOSE stands for the Grand Order of Successful Entrepreneurs and every member has either started or ran a highly successful business.
The Rice Business Plan Competition (RBPC) is the largest and richest student business plan competition in the world. The GOOSE Society has been awarding prizes to the winner of the RBPC program since its inception. The grand prize is now an investment prize of $300,000 from the GOOSE Society with potential for much more.
The group is comprised of twenty members including five MBAs, one MD, four PhDs, and one JD. GOOSE has invested over $30 million in startups with four exits of 5-10x and has 16 current investments. The net worth of GOOSE membership in aggregate is in the billions and the members thrive on rolling up their sleeves to help their portfolio companies.
