COLUMBIA BUSINESS SCHOOL

VENTURE FELLOWS

At the very center of venture capital, technology, and education.

 

The CBS Venture Fellows program is a selective, student-run organization putting MBA candidates in the shoes of venture capitalists.

Over the course of the academic year, first-year MBA students at Columbia undertake research on self-selected VC investment theses, culminating with presentations for leading venture capitalists in New York City.

Each fellow dissects an emerging technology or business model, creating a framework on how to approach and analyze investing in startups in the space. Throughout the year, students are expected to become experts in their sub-sector, meeting with entrepreneurs, operators, and VCs. Along the way, second-year fellows provide feedback and mentorship as each student's thesis is developed and refined.

Started in 2014, the Venture Fellows program puts Columbia Business School students at the center of the conversation on entrepreneurship and venture capital.
