VIP-C exists to help students in the early stages of venture development. It is open to all students in degree-granting programs at the University of Pennsylvania. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
VIP-Community provides the community, support, and resources you need to grow your startup. For VIP-C, we are looking for individual students or student teams with a basic understanding of entrepreneurship concepts and a well-thought-through venture concept. You must also have measurable objectives that you are planning to reach while in the program.
Once accepted to VIP-C, you become part of our entrepreneurial community, and gain access to:
- Workshops and Bootcamps;
- Group and individual advising;
- A support system of fellow VIP-C members.
While in the program, students are expected to work on their ventures to reach established milestones and develop a product or service, market, and team. You may remain in VIP-C as long as you are engaged in the program and making progress on your venture.
