We are committed to stimulating growth within Penn State's diverse entrepreneurial community by providing the necessary due diligence, strategic advisory, and funding to launch and grow startups.
Weekly educational sessions provide students a platform to learn about the venture capital industry and gain valuable experience through bi-weekly projects and competitions. Heavily engaged members are offered the opportunity to join SVP's investment committee towards the end of each semester.
Dedicated members within SVP's investment committee focus on sourcing promising ventures and bridging the gap between early-stage funding and further growth through its valuable relationships with VC funds in NYC and Pennsylvania. Our unique blend of student leaders in various majors across campus enhances our sourcing process and investment decisions.
