VCAP

Venture Capital Apprenticeship Program

Empowering students to invest in small businesses.

VCAP 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.
