Venture Cup Alumnis
We've had more than 17,000 university students through our programs.
Venture Cup has existed since 2000, and we've had more than 17,000 university students through our programs. Many no longer exist, many of the previous participants have become entrepreneurs or employees in different companies and some have managed to scale their ideas into scale-ups and large enterprises.
Common to them all: They're part of the Venture Cup family and many of them devote time to inspire and teach the new generation of university students about entrepreneurship. For us, the most important thing is that we're able to inspire and support entrepreneurship - in all shapes
