About the Program

Darden Connect is a multi-day, immersive program for select MBA students interested in entrepreneurship and venture capital careers who demonstrate a commitment to pursuing opportunities in venture during or immediately after their Darden education. The program offers unique connections to key individuals, companies and organizations active in venture communities across the United States, establishing a network of founders and investors that students can begin to cultivate prior to graduation. Since 2018, four Darden Connect cohorts have completed the program, offered in the San Francisco Bay Area and Austin, Texas. For more information, including dates and locations for the 2020-21 academic year, please contact Robyn Swift, Director of Strategic Initiatives.
