Are there instances of IIT professors making early investments in the startups of their students?

Most IIT professors are not that rich to have excess cash to invest their personal money in high risk startups. I have seen IITs fund students to start their own startups along with a professor as their partner/mentor, but I don't know of any startup where an IIT professor was an investor.

We are a "poor" group of people.

See question on Quora

I like to blog about various topics ranging from education in IITs to social issues in India and US. All opinions and views presented here are my own and not of my employer.
