Venture Capital Apprenticeship Program

Empowering students to invest in small businesses

Program Details

Venture Capital Apprenticeship Program (VCAP) is an apprenticeship program where students gain access to real, practical opportunities for the application of their finance and business-related skills.


Through a partnership with LSU Department of Finance, Nexus Louisiana and its affiliates Innovation Catalyst and the Red Stick Angels, participating companies can engage students to work on the companies’ short-term projects in return for the practical experience that the students gain. There are typically two cohorts of student volunteers: one in the spring and one in the fall. The program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in a participating venture capital course.
