- Interested in meeting entrepreneurs and helping to write new case studies?
There are some exciting experiential learning opportunities in the areas of Entrepreneurship, Business Planning and Venture Capital we’d like to discuss on the evening of Tuesday, September 8th, from 5:00 – 6:00 pm in Questrom Room 220. Apply what you’re learning in the classroom to real-world entrepreneurial challenges and opportunities!
These activities are not mutually exclusive in that you can become involved in just one or more than one. These may be eligible for directed study credit but please check with your respective Academic Program head to ensure you are able to enroll.
The opportunities are:
- The G-51 Venture Capital Internship (4 open spots – Fall Semester)
Work with a Venture Capital firm reviewing startup business plans, conducting deal flow review, and communicating directly with entrepreneur teams. Under the tutelage of faculty member Greg Stoller and the G-51 partners, students will get firsthand experience evaluating early stage companies and contributing investment recommendations to a highly successful VC firm investing in high growth businesses.
Students who have strong demonstrated finance skills and a passion for entrepreneurship are encouraged to apply, but all backgrounds are welcome.
- The Venture Capital Investment Competition (Seeking at least 5 students – Fall & Spring)
Represent Questrom as a “Venture Capitalist”! Students can act as venture capitalists during an elevator pitch competition to be held on campus, competing with other graduate schools. They will choose the best entrepreneur presentations and negotiate mock term sheets for investment. This competition incorporates venture capital related readings and participation in a local competition in the fall, as well as a regional competition in the spring.
- Graduate Assistantship (1 student, pays $12-15/ hr, approx. 3 hrs/week)
Work with faculty member Greg Stoller to develop case studies on early stage businesses over the course of the academic year. This position is paid with a flexible time commitment, and you will have the opportunity to be published as a co-author to case studies that will be used in Questrom electives.
To respond to any of the 3 opportunities, please submit a resume and a cover letter to faculty member Greg Stoller at [email protected] by no later than Wednesday, September 9th.
Of course, please contact me with questions, too, at any time!
