bit of funding.

re-opens, the teams who earn it will be awarded, 24/7 access to the VDC.

Mondays and Fridays. Also for those
who earn it, help is provided by outside advisors (experienced entrepreneurs,
investors and businesspersons) on Friday afternoons.
Finally, for the teams who earn it,
a bit of funding is provided, $250 in reimbursable funds towards costs
associated with the search for a business model.

The purpose of our VentureOn Community is:
1) * to provide a community of like-minded people. It’s a place for all interested in the diversity of what entrepreneurship is and could be, students’ ventures cover a wide variety of ideas, ranging from social activism, sustainability, real estate, mental health, sports, data and artificial intelligence to vegan candies and many more. We are open to all ideas.
2) * an opportunity for those who want to learn whether they “can do this too”. And believe me you “can do this too”.
3) * Know what you are doing? Have a community? VentureOn is also an opportunity for those who want to “roll up their sleeves and get to work” on their ideas. Whether they are conventional ventures, social ventures or “self-sustaining” non-profits we provide a means to help you if you want to get to work.
There is no time obligation and there is no commitment. It’s up to you. Join the community any Wednesday night you choose.
