Competitions & Workshops
Last year, Venture College students won over $50,000 in prize money through student competitions. In addition to hosting monthly pitch competitions, Venture College also helps students prepare through ideation sessions, pitch practice, and professional workshops – which are hands-on and will add skills and knowledge you can add on your resume or LinkedIn profiles. See the Full Calendar of Events.
The Venture College pairs students with startups and small businesses throughout the Treasure Valley to work on short term (2-4 weeks) projects. Students gain relevant hands on experience that they can add to their resume or LinkedIn profiles. Learn More about Professional Projects.
