OUR VENTURE PROCESS

Our pledge education process is, in its own way, our own product. We’re constantly iterating on what equips new members with the tools needed to successfully dive into their own ventures.

While the specifics are left as a surprise to the new members, here’s an overview of the different phases of the venture-building aspect of pledging:

01

Ideate

Idea generation → validation → research.

02

Sell a product (idea)

Learning what sells to people and what doesn’t through direct experience.

03

Build an MVP

Using the past two phases to build a solid MVP with backed research.

04

Present to VCs

Testing the culmination of the semester of hard work.
