Program Overview

Open to first and second year students only.

Our intensive semester-long program aims to equip students with a wide-ranging skill set, particularly emphasizing venture capital. Our aim is to empower students with both a strong skill set and valuable resources, positioning them for success in their future careers. Students will finish with over four portfolio projects* including an early-stage pitch, a growth equity stage pitch with DCF valuation, an industry pitch and investment thesis, and IPO analysis.

See examples of projects here.

Note that no prior experience in investing is needed, but a strong curiosity in technology and venture capital is encouraged!

Alumni Story

Jahow joined SVS as part of Series G in his sophomore year. Through the Venture Team curriculum, he conducted research and pitched the then Series A digital marketing start-up Lunchbox Technologies.

Later, he reached out to the founders of Lunchbox with his pitch. They extended him a summer internship offer, and he ended up working for them for over a year!

SVS strongly developed Jahow's interest in venture capital and growth equity, and he will be working at Adams Street as a full-time analyst this year.
