IVCA Membership - Illinois Venture Capital Association


Since 2007, we have hosted 64 students at 28 VC/PE firms.  The summer program introduces the Scholars to the Illinois VC/PE industry through:
  • Internships at Illinois investor firms
  • Presentations from multiple VC/PE firms
  • Visits with professional advisor firms
  • Social networking opportunities
  • Network building opportunities
  • Financial modeling program/certification

We hope to bend the arc of progress by growing the pool of available and qualified, diverse candidates.

The 2021 IVCA Scholar class is the largest yet and includes 15 students from:

  • University of Chicago
  • University of Illinois at Chicago
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  • University of Notre Dame

The Scholars begin their summer with a four half-day program of On Boarding.  View their schedule here. IVCA appreciates the participation of all who shared their expertise with our students!
