Columbia Venture Community (CVC) is a private community for Columbia alumni, students, and employees interested in all aspects of entrepreneurship. The group welcomes members from any Columbia University school, sector or industry function (e.g., entrepreneur, investor, designer, lawyer, etc.).
CVC seeks to foster entrepreneurship by facilitating communication, providing access to resources, and creating community. Members meet every few weeks to participate in an array of events including incubation nights, demo nights, educational speaker panels, dinners and happy hours.
Individuals must supply their current or former Columbia email address (UNI) to become a member.
CVC is endorsed by Columbia University and is classified as a "shared interest group" (SIG), though it operates as a fully autonomous entity.
