We are delighted to announce the launch of TeenVC, powered by Augmentum Fintech, a free digital education platform where teenagers can learn about Venture Capital (VC) and entrepreneurship.
At a time when schools around the world are closing and many teenagers are at home with more time on their hands, we thought we’d help break the boredom in an engaging, educational manner, helping teens from all walks of life learn about VC, tech and entrepreneurship. We had a number of educational initiatives planned over the next few months that we’re modifying in light of COVID-19, including working with social mobility charity The Sutton Trust and a work experience week. We decided to launch TeenVC to continue the work digitally, educating young people on a career path rarely talked about in school and college careers education.
Starting tomorrow (31st March), then every Tuesday and Thursday throughout April 2020, a new content block comprising videos, articles and a quiz covering different elements of the VC industry will be released. Students will also be able to watch videos from people across the industry share their thoughts and experiences in an easily-digestible manner and engage in Q&As.
The initiative will close with “The TeenVC Challenge”, a deal-sourcing exercise that students can complete for their chance to be selected for an exclusive “VC Insights Experience” with Augmentum Fintech.
