IVCA Celebrates Completion of 2017 IVCA Scholar Program

IVCA Celebrates Completion of 2017 IVCA Scholar Program

August 16, 2017

On August 17, IVCA will hold the closing ceremony for the 2017 IVCA Scholar Program.  The program sponsored by Kirkland & Ellis, will be held from 4:00pm-6:00pm at 300 N. LaSalle Street.  We congratulate our Scholars for their completion of the program!

The IVCA Scholar Program is intended to improve VC/PE industry diversity by exposing students from under-represented groups to career options in the venture capital/private equity industry.  Students work at a venture capital or private equity firm and participate in informational sessions at firms that provide services to VC & PE investors (accounting, valuation, legal, consulting etc.) as well as taking part in the Toastmasters program.

The 2017 program runs from June 12th – August 18th, 2017.
