2017 was a year of record deal and dollar volume for the venture capital industry. As technology makes giant strides, more people are looking to get involved in the dynamic environment that consists of startups and VC. And college students are increasingly trying to do so as well. In fact, several universities have invested resources into creating entrepreneurial institutes on campus to encourage entrepreneurship on campus. Notable examples include Harvard's i-Lab and NYU's Leslie e-Lab. But for many students, this is simply not enough.
That's where Quake comes in.
If you're currently an undergraduate student interested in tech and/or venture capital, Quake’s Collegiate Venture Program is a great way to get started.
CVP is an immersive, virtual student ambassador program that allows university students to learn about the world of entrepreneurship while collaborating on real venture capital deals. While we're based in New York and LA, you don't need to be on site to start your venture capital journey.
As a College Venture Associate, you will:
- Collaborate on real deals with Quake’s Investment Team
- Learn to evaluate seed-stage companies through classroom-style and hands-on training
- Network with the startup communities on campus and in your city
- Join a team of smart and motivated young entrepreneurs
This is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the venture capital and startup communities in your city. Interested? Apply here by this Friday, February 16, 2018!
