STUDENT-RUN VENTURE CAPITAL

Following the example of Twente’s Dutch Student Investment Fund, Amsterdam will get its very own student-run venture capital fund, starting this September.

We believe that if you give talented students true responsibility, magical things can happen. That’s why the Amsterdam Student Investment Fund is a real company, with real money, real startups, and real ambitions. As a full-time board member, you literally run your own venture capital fund. You assess business plans, decide on when to invest in what startups, help promising entrepreneurs reach their full potential, attract capital, and keep your shareholders happy. 

About the board year 

We are now looking for our very first board members. Four ambitious students from Amsterdam will get the opportunity to challenge themselves in a unique way, and you can apply to be one of them. We don’t care whether you’re studying finance, biology or French. Neither does it matter if you’re studying at the HvA, UvA or VU – if you’re talented, eager to learn, and sport an entrepreneurial mindset, this might just be your year.

Who we're looking for  How to apply 

HOW WE INVEST

Good investment is simple, really. First, get in touch with as many promising startups as possible. Then, from those, pick the winners. Finally, make sure to help your startups out so that they become more valuable. Summarized: attract, select, grow. Being students, we have unique advantages in each of the three processes.

ATTRACT

We won’t miss a single deal. Being students, we are in a unique position to see Amsterdam’s most exciting young startups before anyone else. Your strategy is to become the one stop shop for any student that considers entrepreneurship. Build a strong presence at all strata of Amsterdam’s student life. Organize monthly pitch nights. Offer workshops. Go to networking events. Make sure you see everything.

SELECT

We know gold when we see it. Sifting trough all those business plans, your job is to separate the wheat from the chaff. Our network of serial entrepreneurs, business angels and the top 5 Dutch venture capital companies will coach and advise you, but ultimately, it’s your decision who to invest up to €50.000 in. Will this product have real impact? Is the market size really as large as suggested? And most importantly: do you believe in the team of entrepreneurs to make the business plan a reality?

GROW

We make our startups grow, using our unfair advantages. Really, making an investment is just the start. Once you’ve added a startup to your portfolio, you’ll want to do everything within your powers to make it grow. And you can help in some unique ways. Partner with corporates to become launching customers. Help the startup get follow-up investments. Design its international expansion path. And finally, guide the startup through its exit strategy and generate a return on investment for the Fund.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: JUNE 1
