At least 87 students at The University of Sheffield do. In Spring Semester 2017, we’ll launch an educational programme to run alongside our Fund. The students accepted onto this programme will form a society that meets on a weekly basis to debate trends, share learnings and discuss potential deals. We’ll put on 6 weeks of delivered talks with investors and entrepreneurs to give the students some foundational theory in Venture Capital, such as how funds are modelled, how to add impact as a VC and the entrepreneurs’ perspective. After this is complete, the students will start sourcing and managing deal flow as an associate VC might in another venture capital firm. We always knew there were students out there who would jump at this opportunity. After all, it’s rare to get this kind of experience. But we had lots of debates and discussions
