Venture University (VU) is the world's leading investor accelerator for individuals looking to break into venture capital, private equity, and angel investing. VU offers two Investor Accelerators: The Venture Capital Investor Accelerator and the Real Estate Private Equity & REIT Investor Accelerator. Each Investor Accelerator includes a comprehensive Executive Education Program (Masterclass, Advanced Modules, Deal Madness, & Fireside Chats) and an Investment Apprenticeship to provide high quality investment experience.
Individuals "learn by doing" by joining the investment team of VU Venture Partners, a global venture capital fund, and VU Capital Partners, a global private equity fund, where they focus on building skills such as deal sourcing, conducting due diligence, and investment evaluation, and receive a Profit Sharing Agreement to share in the financial upside on the investments made. During the Venture Capital Investor Accelerator cohort members join one of the seven vertical investment teams: Consumer, Enterprise, FinTech, Frontier, Healthcare, PropTech, & Web3, and invest in ~2-4 new portfolio companies and ~1-3 follow-on rounds per quarter. During the Real Estate Private Equity Investor Accelerator cohort members join one of the three vertical investment teams: Residential Real Estate, Commercial Real Estate, and Industrial Real Estate, and invest in ~1-2 real estate investments per quarter.
Individuals receive mentorship, career strategy and development, VC/PE industry networking, and learn from and work alongside top performing investment professionals.
