What is Venture Capital (VC) ?

What is Impact Investing?

About Us

ImpactVC launched in August 2020 as an interest group for students curious about the intersection of finance, technology, and social impact.

Thinking like a startup, our initial "MVP" (Minimal Viable Product) had 2 main components:

  • A 2-semester Speaker Series where we connected with more than 120 students

  • A small group Mentorship Program where students were given unfiltered access to a group of seasoned investors (Average group size of 2.75 students)
