Venture Program with March Capital

The Venture Program with March Capital


The Venture Program with March Capital is designed to promote and support student interest in roles in entrepreneurship, innovation, and venture capital at the Claremont Colleges.  The three-month program will expose students to the venture capital industry and innovation economy through guided research projects and a number of workshops led by the March Capital team. During the program, students will investigate areas of interest in March Capital and present their findings in a pitch competition.  

March Capital will determine the focus areas for investigation prior to the program and students will group into teams of no more than three to build investment theses around those areas. Historically,  March Capital has spent time in the following areas: Fintech, Enterprise AI, Cybersecurity, eCommerce  Enablement, and Data and Cloud Infrastructure.  

All RLCIE Fellows Candidates are welcome to enter. The prizes typically include a reception hosted by members of March Capital following the competition,  a reception hosted by members of the March Capital Investment Team, a cash prize, and an invitation to attend The Montgomery Summit. All competitors who make it to the presentation phase of the program will receive March Capital swag.

Expected time commitment varies, we anticipate the full program to take between 10 and 20 hours to complete over the course of three months (incl. workshops and final presentation).
