An insatiable desire to learn.


We will cover different topics in investing and operating through the lens of an investor. Investing topics will help build the mindset and perspective of a VC, and then go into the operating topics to review a potential investment. The goal is to provide a hands-on learning experience for students to be part of a venture capital team. The intent is to make VC accessible to students to help jump-start their career in investing or entrepreneurship. We will discuss VC investing, financial modeling, entrepreneurial frameworks, de-mystify venture capital, and potentially build the future together.
