The Simon School Venture Capital Fund, a student-run effort of the University of Rochester’s Simon Graduate School of BusinessAdministration, has made its first investment, in Palmyra’s StormBlok Systems Inc.

StormBlok makes a shield designed to protect signs, ATMs and fuel pumps from wind and weather damage and a wind resistance shield for truck fleets.

Simon did not give any financial details on the investment. In a statement, StormBlok said the money will help in marketing in areas needing storm and hurricane protection technology.
