UCLA Ventures Holiday Match

UCLA Ventures is a community-driven venture fund, designed to support the UCLA entrepreneurial ecosystem. We do this by focusing on our three main priorities: (1) growing and supporting our community of UCLA-affiliated entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, (2) strengthening our portfolio of pledged and invested assets, and (3) deploying the returns from this portfolio to impact UCLA’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

This year, we choose to support Startup UCLA's activities and ask that you help us in this effort. For every dollar you donate, we will match it up to $25,000! If we can reach our goal, Startup UCLA will receive a total of $50,000 to help fund its annual activities.

 

 

Take advantage of this exciting chance to have your generosity matched dollar for dollar and double your impact!

 

 

Startup UCLA

Startup UCLA was established in 2012 with a mission to foster the development of UCLA entrepreneurs. They do that through offering free consulting, office space, and introductions to a network of mentors to any and all matriculated UCLA students, alumni, staff, and faculty. Startup UCLA regularly holds workshops and fireside chats that are open to the former as well as the public at large.

 

Startup UCLA Summer Accelerator

The most well-known offering is the Startup UCLA Summer Accelerator, the first Summer Accelerator for UCLA students/young alumni to develop their tech-startups during a ten-week highly intensive program. The startups are provided with co-working space on UCLA’s campus, a $5,000 stipend, legal guidance, dedicated mentorship from our experienced staff, skill workshops led by industry experts, and introductions to top-tier entrepreneurs and investors.

Pitching to VCs

The Accelerator teams travel to the Bay Area for a tour of Venture Capital firms and startup entrepreneurs, making valuable connections while getting constructive feedback on their pitches from industry professionals. These trips are instrumental in preparing these young entrepreneurs for raising venture capital.

 

 

 

From an accelerator program, to yearlong access to a co-working space, venture consultants, and workshops, Startup UCLA is the program we all wish we had when we were students at UCLA!
