Join the next generation of great venture investors.

Become a member of Van Wickle Ventures

Van Wickle Ventures is powered by its Student Associates. Associates have the opportunity to meet founders, evaluate startups, and make real investments with real money.


In your first semester with the fund, you will learn what it means to be a venture capitalist by engaging in a curriculum we developed, which includes workshops, case studies, and guest speakers. In subsequent semesters, you will then source opportunities, perform due diligence, and recommend investment decisions to our Investment Committee of industry experts. Through developing an academic foundation and gaining hands-on experience, you will be well-prepared for a life of innovation and impact.


VWV welcomes undergrads (first-years through juniors), as well as graduate students who aren't in their last year. No prior experience required! There’s truly no archetype of what we’re looking for, other than someone hungry to learn and embrace all things entrepreneurial. We are looking for students with a passion for learning and all things entrepreneurship.


Applications have closed for 2023/2024

Thank you for your interest! We hope to see you next year.

"VWV has been one of the most educational experiences I’ve had at Brown. I’ve been able to connect with countless alumni, investors, and students."
