Laurier Venture Captial
We are excited to launch Laurier's first venture capital club for the 2020/2021 year. Venture capital in Canada is growing at 50% per year and the Canadian tech scene is exploding. Our goal is to create a community where students can learn more about venture capital and build tangible skills to land employment in the field. This year, we will be working hard with our executive team to host a venture capital case competition in the fall and a networking event in the winter. We will be launching an analyst program and a series of workshops where students can learn fundamental theories and skills. In addition, we offer mock interviews and resume reviews for students applying to venture investing jobs. We can’t wait for a year filled with dedication, passion, and success! #InnovationIsEverything
LVC Analyst Program
LVC’s analyst program is designed to give students an introduction to the fundamentals of venture capital and be a stepping stone as students enter the industry. Analysts will be given the opportunity to be paired up with a mentor with venture capital experience to learn first hand about the industry. Analysts will also participate in bi-weekly meetings, each with a different key concept that is important to understand when working in the industry. Example topics include, Deal Sourcing, Capitalization Tables, Term sheets and the entrepreneurs perspective to venture capital. In weeks with no meetings, analysts will be given supplementary readings to further their understanding and projects that will allow them to apply the skills they have learned in real life scenarios.
LVC's mission is to educate the Laurier community about the venture capital scene and to help Laurier students get internships and full-time employment in the Canadian venture capital industry.
