BREAKING INTO STARTUPS & VENTURE CAPITAL

This section is mostly for those interested in founding/building their own startup in college (or out of college!), as well as those looking to break into venture capital out of undergrad (which is almost as rare as accomplishing the former). If you are looking to acquire hands-on VC experience, you may consider applying to student-run venture capital programs such as Dorm Room Fund, Contrary Partners, and more.
