Student Experience Program
Cultivating the Next Generation of Investors and Entrepreneurs
Shadow Days are created for students interested in Entrepreneurship or VC who are just taking their first steps! This experience is best suited for students early in their studies, or young professionals considering a career switch into the world of startups. These 1-hour experiences are scheduled on a first come, first served basis and subject to OIF Investment Team availability.
Venture boot camp
Want to take a deeper dive into VC? Join us for a week-long boot camp where you'll get to tackle completing accelerated due diligence of a "live" company in OIF's pipeline. Working in a small team, you'll present your investment recommendation at the end of the week. VBC is an application-based experience with offerings available during spring, summer, and winter breaks. Our next VBC with spots available will be held in January 2024.
Do you want to help scale startups, diligence investments, and make real impact? Our internship program is highly selective and takes a holistic review of candidates' educational, professional, and extracurricular backgrounds. Our interns are most frequently rising junior or seniors; however, we've hosted exceptional students early in their education, as well as graduate students in the past.

“OIF differs from other organizations I have been involved with, in that it provides autonomy and responsibility to employees. OIF encouraged me to think creatively to produce impactful reports and solve problems.”
