Welcome to Campus Partners — the best network for the future generation of aspiring VCs, founders, and startup operators.
Launched in 2017, Campus Partners is a network of more than 75 students (and growing!) from top universities who are obsessed with tech, startups, and investing. Our Campus Partners have sourced hundreds of investment opportunities, attended demo days and events, met with founders, worked with our portfolio companies, and more.
Many have also gone on to work at leading companies and venture firms such as Morgan Stanley, BlackRock, Dataminr, TCG, Insight Venture Partners, Blumberg Capital, Equal Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, and First Round Capital.
The ideal candidate for the Campus Partner network is:
- Active in the startup community on campus. We’re looking for students who are active members of university venture funds, entrepreneurship clubs, or have other relevant participation within the startup community at their university.
- Passionate about developing an incredible network. As a Campus Partner, your network is your superpower. We’re looking for students with a demonstrated drive to knock on doors and build genuine relationships with entrepreneurs.
- Collaborative. As with any network, the more you give, the more you get. We’re looking for students who are active members in online communities on Slack, Facebook, Twitter, Product Hunt, Reddit, or other relevant platforms.
- Down to earth. We’re looking for students who are obsessed with staying up-to-date with the latest trends. In our world, things move fast and we spend a lot of time thinking about the past, present, and future.
Campus Partners is open to students from all backgrounds and we encourage everyone with a passion for technology, startups, and venture capital to apply!
