IVCA Membership - Illinois Venture Capital Association
Past IVCA Scholars

               

 

What began as a handful in 2007, the IVCA Scholar Program has now grown to total 64 Scholars including this year’s class. 

Our objective is to introduce our Scholars to the industry as a whole including:

  • Including the firm itself on both investment side and back office,
  • And within the professional service fields who support the industry such as legal, accounting, investment banking, fund administration, etc.

Our goal is to create a pipeline of candidates for future opportunities in the VC/PE industry.

And once an IVCA Scholar, always an IVCA Scholar!  IVCA endeavors to keep in touch with all prior scholars as well as keeping them informed of potential employment opportunities.  They also remain “honorary” members of IVCA and are invited to attend IVCA events and are encouraged to keep in touch with IVCA members.
