Batten Institute - Darden Venture Lab

Darden Venture Lab

Darden Venture Lab (DVL) provides dedicated workspace, scheduled programming, grant support and community engagement to select, full-time Darden students actively managing early-stage ventures with traction. DVL is distinct from Darden courses that focus on educating, building and validating ventures. Student companies in DVL already have momentum and are aggressively pursuing product/market fit (PMF) with different demands than those of founders addressing minimum-viable product (MVP) challenges.

Information about the 2019-20 Venture Lab is forthcoming.
