Student Venture Funds are a catalyst to help student ventures move beyond the idea stage.
A couple hundred dollars can mean the difference between an idea staying just an idea or becoming something much more. From validating customers to testing assumptions, there is a point when great student ideas need a small amount of capital to proceed. Whether a student venture becomes a successful endeavor or a learning experience, there is immense value in taking a step forward. In addition to the funding, student ventures will get support, mentorship, and connections through the Alan B. Miller Entrepreneurship Center. Student Venture Funding will be allocated according to the composition of the team as follows:
Single-person ventures – up to $250.
Multi-person ventures with students from the same major – up to $500.
Multi-person ventures where students are from different majors – up to $750.
*Teams may only be awarded funding one time per year. Successfully funded ventures may only submit in a subsequent year if all post-funding expectations have been adequately met.
