What you’ll get:
Exclusive access to people and companies that can help you grow and take your ideas to the next level. Industry leaders, venture capitalists, professors, entrepreneurs.
The opportunity to collaborate with the best students in various complementary disciplines and the chance to live and work in a residence facility like no other.

An intensive week of VeloCity Bootcamp the first week of the term where you learn how to network, create a business plan, deal with accounting and legal and more.
A weekly dinner with a guest speaker who has experience in entrepreneurship. They’ll give you insight into what starting up is really like and there is always an opportunity for questions after the talk.
Also, fees have been structured with your needs in mind.
