Hi there! Welcome to Campus Partners—the best network for the future generation of aspiring VCs, founders, and operators.
Launched in 2017, Campus Partners is a network of 75+ students (and growing!) from top universities who are obsessed with tech, startups, and investing. We recruit new batches every semester and only accept a handful of candidates from the hundreds of applications we receive.
In the past two years, our Campus Partners have sourced hundreds of investment opportunities, attended demo days and events, met with founders, worked with the Ground Up portfolio companies, and much more.
They have also gone on to work at leading companies such as Morgan Stanley, BlackRock, Dataminr, Equal Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, and First Round Capital.
We’re now recruiting the next batch of Campus Partners for the Spring 2020 semester 🎉

- Active in the startup community on-campus. We’re looking for students who are active members of university venture funds, entrepreneurship clubs, or other relevant active participation with the startup community at your university.
- Passionate about developing an incredible network. As a Campus Partner, your network is your superpower. We’re looking for students who have demonstrated that they have the drive to knock on doors and build real, genuine relationships with entrepreneurs.
- Collaborative and takes ownerships. 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.
