a Scout


Kickstart your VC Career

With venture capital, the sooner you start, the better! Starting early to build a track record of picking successful startups is the surest way of building your reputation to eventually secure a venture capital role.

Earn Equity in Startups without Investing Your $$$

You can earn a share in the startups you scout! If our partner VC funds decide to invest, you can earn a share of the investment without having your own funds to invest directly (just like a VC partner).

Build Your Network and Community

As a Scout, you have a front-row seat to interesting startups! Reach out, network, and build your community in the venture ecosystem.
