2016 Summer Venture Program Wellesley
Today we start the Summer Venture Program in Wellesley! We are excited to have 15 teams in the Wellesley program this year. The Summer Venture Program is a 10-week intensive experience designed to accelerate the development of entrepreneurial ventures. SVP supports the most promising graduate and undergraduate entrepreneurs from Babson, Olin College of Engineering, and Wellesley College. Teams receive housing, work space, advisors, a speaker series, and other resources to help them and their businesses develop throughout the 10 weeks. We are also launching a pilot of the program in San Francisco this summer with 11 teams!
Here are the teams in this year’s Wellesley cohort:
